The Herbert and Inge Littauer Nursing Scholarship is offered in memory of Herbert and Inge Littauer who arrived in Australia as refugees from Germany in 1938/39 and began new lives. The opportunity to study nursing gave Inge Littauer the incentive to learn English, gain a recognised qualification and in turn contribute in practical ways to her community. Inge Littauer was an intelligent woman who demonstrated courage and determination. She paved new ways in her own life and would want others to have similar opportunities.
The scholarship application process is highly competitive with a limited number of scholarships available. Unfortunately, not all eligible applicants will receive one.
Only successful candidates will be notified via email to their RMIT student account.
For information about other financial assistance available to RMIT students, please speak to one of our Student Welfare Advisors.
