Our Scott Reid Memorial Scholarship is offered in partnership with MinterEllison Gold Coast. It honours the memory of Scott Reid, Partner of MinterEllison Gold Coast, who was a brilliant leader, mentor, lawyer and family man, who approached both his professional and personal life with great humility, empathy and good humour. Scott also devoted much of his life to the development of AFL in Papua New Guinea, which now has more than 2.5 million people who have played the game and participates in international AFL tournaments in Australia.
The Scott Reid Memorial Scholarship rewards a Papua New Guinean student applying for Law who meets the selection criteria:
