Russell Renhard Scholarship – applications are now open

Applications are now open for a $10,000 grant to support a human service organisation implement a quality improvement project.

The QIP Team is pleased to announce that applications for the Russell Renhard Scholarship 2021 are now open.

The Scholarship is a $10,000 one-off payment to support a health or community service organisation implement a quality improvement project that aligns with Russell Renhard’s vision for ‘continual improvement in health and community service organisations in a manner that reflects social justice.’

To be considered for the $10,000, our human services clients are asked to explain to us how their quality improvement project is responding to a social justice issue (or issues) and enabling those who most need it to access high-quality health or community services.

QIP General Manager, Operations – Stacy Kambouris and his team works with human service organisations of all sizes and types across Australia to achieve accreditation.

Stacy said that changing systems and cultures requires people to think and act outside of the status quo.

“Through a $10,000 payment, the Russell Renhard Scholarship will help one of our client organisations bring a quality improvement project to life.

“We are excited to support our clients in this way – for someone, it may be the boost that’s needed to push an important project over the finishing line in a way that may have otherwise been unattainable”, Stacy said.

Find out more and submit your application on our Russell Renhard webpage.

Applications close on Friday 10 September 2021.

The Scholarship recipient will be announced at a lunch and networking event to be held at the State Library of Victoria on Friday 22 October 2021.
