The Scholarship was established in 2020 in memory of Anthony (Tony) John Ridgway to support research in endocrinology. When Mr Ridgway was diagnosed with a brain tumour, he searched for information, discussion forums and published research articles for understanding and found little to assist. He resolved to alter this by leaving a gift in his will to The University of Queensland to progress research in endocrinology so that it would help others. ​



The scholarship is open to domestic candidates who are successful in receiving a base stipend scholarship to undertake a Higher Degree by Research in the field of endocrinology. There is a preference, though not a requirement, towards a focus on neuro-endocrinology.
