Premier's Hicksons Lawyers Health Education and Wellbeing Scholarship

This scholarship is open to teachers currently teaching health and physical education and/or with responsibilities for student wellbeing in NSW schools, pre-schools and TAFE NSW campuses. The scholarship is for a study of health and physical education and wellbeing that investigates strategies to support education institutions to enable students to be healthy, happy, engaged and successful.

The successful applicant will undertake a study tour and follow-up activities of up to five weeks within Australia, with optional virtual international connections undertaken as appropriate. Study tour travel is to be completed in one block by 30 June 2023, with individual follow-up activities and reporting to be completed within 90 days of study tour completion.

Time may involve formal study (eg, undertaking a short course at a respected tertiary institution) or may involve a program of visits to sites, schools and institutions to conduct interviews, observe exemplary practices and collect resources for the preparation of teaching materials related to the specific scholarship category.

A portion of time (up to one week) should be allocated toward follow-up dissemination activities (eg, experience-sharing, professional learning) within and across NSW, either in-person or virtually. Study tour follow-up activities and outcomes should ideally include specific reference to enhancing rural and regional education.

One scholarship of $15,000 will be offered for travel during 2023.

This scholarship is dedicated to the memory of Robert Horton. Proudly supported by Hicksons Lawyers.

Applications opening Term 1, 2022.
