Latrobe City Trust will invite applications on an annual basis for the awarding of the Lorraine Bartling OAM Scholarship in Nursing and / or Social Work. The scholarship has been established to commemorate the life and work of Lorraine Bartling OAM and her contribution to this region.

Each scholarship provides a one off grant of $500, intended to assist with the further development of the applicant’s skills or qualifications. Normally, one scholarship will be made in each year, although the Latrobe City Trust reserves the right to award more than one scholarship, or no scholarship, in any given year.
