Lorraine Bartling OAM Scholarship in Nursing or Social Work Guidelines (Latrobe City Trust)

Applications open 1 February 2020 and closes 15 April 2020

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

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.


Applicants will have completed at least the first two years of a university or TAFE nursing or social work orientated degree course and will be continuing with either full-time or part-time studies to complete their qualification and/or undertake post-graduate studies. Applications will also be accepted from qualified Nurses and/or Social Workers who are undertaking post-graduate studies in order to further enhance their qualifications.


Applications should include certified copies of academic transcripts, a detailed statement of how planned studies meet the objectives of the scholarship and the name of one academic referee who may be contacted by the scholarship award panel. Short-listed applicants may be invited for interview.

Scholarships will be decided by the Latrobe City Trust, upon the recommendations of a panel appointed by the Trust.
