ESF Scholarships
The aim of the ESF scholarship program is to provide an opportunity for both paid staff and volunteer members of the Victorian Emergency Services to undertake a study tour that will lead to improvements in Victoria’s emergency management sector. It provides successful applicants with a valuable opportunity for self-enrichment and career advancement through the pursuit of knowledge and experience in an area they are passionate about.
ESF scholarships are not for completion of tertiary or other qualifications.
ESF has granted scholarships since 1988 to provide recipients with funds to cover the expense of travel to advance their knowledge and expertise.  Scholarship recipients become ESF Alumni and are encouraged to maintain their association with the ESF and support its work.
Due to travel restrictions associated with COVID-19 pandemic no scholarships were awarded in 2020 or 2021.
In the past, topics of research have been varied. In line with ESFs new strategic direction, priority will be given to applications that address evidence and knowledge gaps in relation to mental health and wellbeing.

2024 ESF Scholarships supported by Rotary
The Emergency Services Foundation has entered a partnership with Rotary to support the longstanding ESF scholarship program.
This partnership with Rotary builds on strong collaboration between the two organisations at the local level, through Tony’s Trek early in 2024, and the new Rotary Emergency Services Community Awards. The partnership will help fund two additional scholarships in 2024.
