Reg Saunders scholarship



The Returned Services League (RSL) established the Reg Saunders tertiary level scholarship in 1992 to support students of an Indigenous background to enter into drug and alcohol abuse studies. The scholarship provides a $3,000 grant to assist with these studies.

The aim of the scholarship is to increase the number of qualified substance abuse professionals among Indigenous communities, and as such, the scholarship requires an applicant to major or specialise in drug and alcohol abuse targeted courses. Where these courses do not specifically contain subjects or units dealing with substance abuse, the students must be able to provide scope for such studies in their elective subjects and field placements.

The scholarship is administered by the Australian Veteran's Children Assistance Trust Limited (AVCAT).

Application details: The closing date for applications is 31 October each year for studies commencing the following year.
