THE TONY FITZGERALD SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Tony Fitzgerald Scholarship Fund supports a Doctor of Philosophy student to conduct a three-year research project reflecting the ethos of the Fitzgerald Inquiry, drawn from areas including criminology, journalism, law, political science, and public administration.
The prestigious scholarship contributes to the capacity of our future practitioners and researchers to maintain the Fitzgerald vision - to keep Parliament in its rightful place at the centre of the democratic system but with the law, community and media entrusted with an active role to keep the system honest and open.
The fund has been established with the assistance of our generous donors and sponsors. We would like to acknowledge the following for their support:
- Premier’s department
- Pelerman Holdings
- Honourable Ros Kelly AO and Mr David Morgan
THE NINA WESTERA PHD SCHOLARSHIP
The Nina Westera PhD Scholarship in Adult Witness Investigative Interviewing aims to continue the work of Dr Nina Westera, a notable researcher in the field of adult witness investigative interviewing and a valued colleague.
It will continue Dr Westera’s commitment to improving police interviews with adult victims, particularly victims of sexual assault and domestic violence.
