Kevin Duke Scholarship

The Kevin Duke Scholarship, awarded every two years, is intended to support successful applicants to fund study which will contribute to their vocational careers.

The scholarship will present opportunities for personal development that may not have been otherwise available and which, ultimately, will assist individuals who have a Spinal Cord Injury to live their potential and to serve the broader community.

Who is Kevin Duke?

The scholarship was named in recognition of Kevin Duke’s contribution to the Spinal Cord Injury community in South Australia via his roles at PQSA (including Presidency), professional career and public service.

Primary consideration is given to applicants who have expressed a desire to study a vocation aligned with PQSA’s operational activities (e.g. Health, Allied Health, Finance, Human Resources, Legal Services and Marketing/Publications). Each recipient can be awarded a scholarship to support their educational pursuits for a period of up to five years. PQSA can also support successful applicants by offering vocational placements and work experience.
