The scholarship aims to assist health professionals by funding important research projects that help prevent road trauma and improve the quality of care delivered to road trauma victims. 

Applicants must be health professionals, Australian residents and work in the state of Victoria. Successful applicant(s) receive up to $56,000 to undertake a project that will lead to improved care in the area of road trauma. 

The RACV Sir Edmund Herring Memorial Scholarship has been awarded annually since 1983, in memory of the late Sir Edmund Herring, a former Governor of Victoria and RACV Patron for 34 years.

The recipient of the 2014 scholarship was Associate Professor Natasha Lannin.  Her research will determine the effectiveness of a reorientation program in acute care to reduce the length of post-traumatic amnesia in adults with traumatic brain injury.
