Judith Liauw lived and worked in the north-west of Tasmania but was at the forefront of modern community pharmacy in Australia. She was a committed professional who made an enduring contribution to pharmacy and the broader health system nationally. Until just before her death in July 2010 she was Branch President of the Pharmacy Guild of Tasmania and a National Councillor of the Australian Pharmacy Guild. Judith was a strong supporter of Pharmacy at UTAS and the student placement program and regularly hosted third and fourth year students for their rural placements in her Ulverstone pharmacy. To recognise her commitment to rural pharmacists in our health system the then Premier of Tasmania, Mr David Bartlett, announced in August 2010 that the Government of Tasmania would fund an annual scholarship for a north-west Tasmanian student studying pharmacy.
Available to a student commencing first year of the Bachelor of Pharmacy with Applied Honours in Semester 1 2022, who was a resident of the North West Coast of Tasmania prior to being accepted into the University of Tasmania. Preference will be given to a student who can show that the financial support of the scholarship will enable them to study Pharmacy.
To retain this award, recipients are required to achieve a minimum Pass result in all units studied each semester.
