Hugh Rogers Fellowships Announced
18 December 2013 at 10:38 am

The Melbourne Boston Sister Cities Association (MBSCA) in partnership with The City of Melbourne have announced four 2013 Hugh Rogers Fellowships recipients who will undertake research projects in Boston in 2014.

The four recipients will be embarking on a diverse range of self-contained, and sustainable research projects at various world-renowned institutions in Boston.

The 2013 recipients are: in the field of Healthcare and Medical Research, Dr Lauren Ayton from The Centre for Eye Research Australia, and Dr Rebecca Lim from The Ritchie Centre, Monash Institute of Health; in the field of Education Christine Healey from the Heide Museum of Modern Art; and in the field of the Arts and Culture, Gemma Turvey from the New Palm Court Orchestra.

The Hugh Rogers Fellowships were established to honour the unique contribution that MBSCA co-founder Hugh Rogers made to these two global cities.

The Fellowships are awarded to practitioners and researchers in the early stages of their careers. Each Fellowship is intended to assist the longer-term development of the Fellow’s career by furthering their research or project and by providing them with opportunities to create new professional networks.

The 2013 Fellowships are valued at close to $40,000, and this year marks the greatest number of recipients and the broadest range of topics covered in one year as the MBSCA grows and the sister city relationship goes from strength to strength.

“With the recent passing of Hugh Rogers in October, this momentous year and the announcement of the 2013 Fellowship recipients highlights the enduring legacy Hugh instilled, and  the passion he left for the Melbourne Boston sister city relationship,” Co-chair of the MBSCA, Rob Trenberth, said.

“Hugh was always an inspiring example of what can be achieved with energy and commitment. He will be missed by all who knew him, but none more so than his colleagues and admirers in the Melbourne Boston Sister Cities Association.”

The 2013 fellowship recipients will embark on their trips to Boston to undertake their projects in late 2013 and early 2014.
