About this scholarship:

Established in 2022 to commemorate the contribution of Dr Helen Maude Row to rural medicine. Dr Helen Row was a pioneering woman who in the late 30's early 40's was the first female GP to go 'out bush' (in war time). The Donor wants to support equality of representation in both GPs and rural practitioners; this award would support and provide encouragement to women on this pathway.
