The Jacquot Awards for 2015

THE JACQUOT AWARDS

The Don Jacquot Fellowship was established in 1985 by a donation from Mrs Lorraine Jacquot of Trash and Treasure Australia Pty Ltd in memory of her late husband. Following the death of Mrs Jacquot in 1992, and receipt of additional funds from her bequest, the Fellowship was renamed the Don & Lorraine Jacquot Fellowship. The legacy has allowed for the funding of additional Fellowships and Scholarships.

These fellowships are jointly administered by The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) and the Australian and New Zealand Society of Nephrology (ANZSN).  The selection committee includes representatives of RACP and ANSZN.

The RACP is grateful for the guidance and support of the Rowling family in administering these prestigious awards.

Apply directly to the RACP Foundation for the following awards:
