The scholarships are named in the memory of lifetime supporter Ms Vi Watson, formerly of Kojonup, who established the Kojonup Opportunity Shop. With the help of her daughter, Mrs Cheryl Walker, Vi raised funds over many years for vital asthma research in WA. Successful students will work under the guidance of some of the world's leading researchers on asthma related research.
Applications are open to all Western Australian-based university students undertaking research projects relevant to asthma. A summary of the proposed project should be provided (collaborative projects will require separate applications from each applicant showing divisions of responsibility) and applicants will need to gain the acceptance of an appropriately qualified supervisor and the approval of the institution in which the work of the project will be undertaken. Students who have completed their honours degree, as well as previous recipients of the Vi Watson Scholarship will not be considered.
The program provides funding of $200 per week for a maximum of 10 weeks.
