Applications are now open for the 2016 RACV Sir Edmund Herring Memorial Scholarship.

The RACV Sir Edmund Herring Memorial Scholarship aims to prevent road trauma and improve the quality of care delivered 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.

The successful candidate(s) receives up to $58,000 to undertake a project that will benefit the motoring public.
