Research provides the opportunity for our staff to investigate and implement life-saving and life-changing opportunities for our patients.

Health research across the Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service (DDHHS) is given an added boost every year with the Pure Land Learning College’s generous annual $120,000 donation to the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation for the ongoing support of annual Research Project Scholarships. 

The Research Project Scholarships are awarded in two categories:

  • Novice (up to the value of $10,000)
  • General (up to the value of $50,000)

This research makes the possibility of new discoveries and treatments for our patients a reality.

Staff wanting to undertake a research study, please read the Application Guidelines before completing the Application Form.
