About Fellowships

Hugh Rogers AM was instrumental in founding the Melbourne Boston Sister Cities Association in 1985 and he continued to remain a driving force throughout his life. Hugh recognised early on the importance of promoting educational exchange between Melbourne and Boston, particularly in the strengths of medical research and the arts.

The Association has created the Hugh Rogers Fellowships to honour and continue Hugh’s outstanding contribution to the life of both cities.

Selected by panel of prominent experts, a small number of fellowships are awarded annually in:

  • Education
  • Healthcare and Medical Research
  • The Arts and Culture
The purpose of the Hugh Rogers Fellowships is to encourage and support innovative people and ideas by funding research and projects that expand and enhance Melbourne's and Boston's reputations as centres of knowledge excellence in the three areas of research.
