The Jacquot Awards
The Jacquot Awards support nephrologists wishing to establish or pursue a research career for the treatment and management of renal disease.
In 1985, Mrs Lorraine Jacquot of Trash and Treasure Australia Pty Ltd established the Don Jacquot Fellowship in memory of her late husband. Following her death in 1992, the RACP Foundation received an additional bequest from Lorraine and the Fellowship was renamed the Don and Lorraine Jacquot Fellowship. Their legacy has allowed for the funding of additional Fellowships and Scholarships over time.
The Awards are co-administered by the RACP and the Australian and New Zealand Society of Nephrology (ANZSN). Representatives from the ANSZN Research Advisory Committee and the RACP Grants Advisory Committees (GAC) assess all Jacquot Award applications.
We are all are grateful for the guidance and support of Ian and Zanette Brown and the Rowling family in the administration of these prestigious Awards.
