Russell Renhard Scholarship 2016 judging has commenced

Applications for the Quality Innovation Performance Limited (QIP) Russell Renhard Scholarship closed on Wednesday 9 November 2016. We would like to thank all of those QIP community clients who submitted applications, outlining the unique ways they are working towards improving health and wellbeing within our communities. Judging is currently underway, so be sure to look out for further updates regarding our scholarship recipient, announced in the near future.

The Russell Renhard Scholarship honours the significant contribution made by Russell to health and social services, accreditation and continuous quality improvement. Additionally, it allows for a legacy to be created in celebrating Russell’s life, along with recognising others contributions to causes that Russell felt so passionately about.

Russell Renhard was a pioneer in the development of quality improvement and capacity building approaches within health and community organisations across Australia. Throughout his career Russell dedicated his effort and expertise to addressing social justice, and supporting systems-based approaches, promoting access to quality services for all. Russell never stopped believing that change was possible and that a more equitable society could be achieved. It was this belief that sustained his efforts and underpinned his vision.

QIP is delighted to fund the Russell Renhard Scholarship, which aims to support and provide funding to a project by a team or individual passionate about the exploration of innovative and best practice, seeking to implement activities addressing issues of social justice, and contributes to improvements that promote access to quality service provision for members of the community.
