The Gregory and Dolores Farrell Scholarships are administered by the SpineCare Foundation and are open to students who:

  • use a wheelchair for mobility;
  • are Australian citizens; and
  • have been accepted into a university course in NSW or are currently enrolled in one.

Students may be studying either full or part time, and may be proceeding to a higher degree in Australia or overseas. The scholarship assists with expenses such as textbooks, accommodation, field trips, stationery and university travel.

In 2016, four Gregory and Dolores Farrell Scholarships of up to $5,000 each were awarded in New South Wales. Existing scholarship recipients are undertaking Bachelor Degrees in a range of fields including Business and Commerce, Medicine, Arts and Education, Science, and Communications.
