Description

This scholarship encourages and supports financially disadvantaged medical students with a demonstrated interest in surgery, in particular orthopaedic surgery.

The TV Stubbs-Brown Medical Student Scholarship was established in 2011 and is maintained by the income of a bequest from Ailsa Munro, in memory of her late husband, Dr TV Stubbs-Brown. 

Eligibility

The scholarship is open to students who:

  • are domestic students in accordance with The University's Fee Policy; and
  • are enrolled in the MBBS or MD program or any dual program that includes the MBBS or MD; and
  • can provide documentary evidence of financial need.

How to apply

Email all required information for this scholarship to med.prizes@uq.edu.au.

Selection criteria

The scholarship is awarded to the applicant showing greatest merit, as demonstrated by:

  • evidence of financial need; and
  • academic achievement in courses undertaken in the relevant program; and
  • strength of interest shown in surgery, and in particular orthopaedics; and
  • personal qualities; and
  • any other matter that the selection committee considers to be relevant to the applicant's future success in the profession of medicine.

The two primary questions of greatest importance are:

  • Why do you believe you require financial assistance?
  • What is your evidence of surgical interest particularly in orthopaedic surgery?

The selection committee may decide to interview short-listed applicants.

In a year where there are eligible applicants from a rural area, preference for one scholarship will be given to the applicant from a rural area showing greatest merit.
