Dorothy Hennessy OAM Emergency Service Youth Scholarship

This Youth Scholarship is aimed at Emergency Service volunteers aged up to 25 years who show outstanding skills in the area they work in. 


In 2018, in conjunction with the Rotary Clubs & Districts of NSW, The Hon Troy Grant MP, former Minister for Emergency Services announced the creation of a $1,000 Dorothy Hennessy Emergency Services Youth scholarship for a volunteer aged up to 25 for training and educational materials or equipment. 
"This scholarship celebrates our young volunteers and honours the outstanding contribution of an individual in providing support to their community." Mr Grant said.


Commissioners from the Marine Rescue NSW, Surf Life Saving NSW, NSW RFS, NSW SES, and the VRA Rescue NSW will each nominate an outstanding individual for consideration of the scholarship. A Rotary NSW panel will determine the most deserving candidate.
