Leo Mahony Bursary
The Leo Mahony Bursary is awarded annually to a masters (by research) or doctoral scholar studying in the field of national security and defence at an ACT-based university.
The Bursary commemorates the memory and service of founding National Secretary of RUSI-A and long-time USI member and Counsellor, Mr Leo Mahony.
The Bursary comprises a one-off payment of $5000, which is provided by USI of the ACT with the generous support of our partner, Rolls-Royce Australia. Recipients are also offered Honorary Membership of the Institute for 12 months.
