Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards. Observed each October, Vocational Service Month spotlights Rotary club projects related to this avenue, offering opportunity for clubs and districts to use their professional skills in service projects.

Current Activity

McLeod Murphy Scholarships

Applications for the McLeod Murphy Memorial Scholarship Fund have been extended until 7 May 2021. Established in memory of Emerald’s first doctor, Dr McLeod Murphy, this scholarship invites applications from students residing in Emerald and surrounds to apply for funds to assist with their study of medicine, medical science or a related field. We hope to present two successful recipients with $2000 each – $1000 for one year of study and a further $1000 a year later if they continue down that path.
