The RACV Sir Edmund Herring Memorial Scholarship supports projects to prevent road trauma and improve the quality of care given to road trauma victims.
The scholarship has been awarded annually since 1983 in memory of the late Sir Edmund Herring, a former Lieutenant Governor of Victoria and RACV Patron for 34 years.
Applicants must be health professionals working in Victoria, and the successful applicant(s) will receive up to $58,000 to undertake their specified project.
Previously funded projects include the trial of speech pathology tests to better identify high-level communication problems in brain injury patients, and the development of guidelines for returning to driving following a traumatic brain injury.
