|Establishment||This scholarship was established in memory of Lewis Ewart Lewis, a local Physiotherapist who committed his entire career to the well-being of the people of Newcastle. Born in Newcastle in 1909, Lewis commenced his health professional career as a podiatrist and chiropodist before qualifying as a Physiotherapist in 1945. |
One of the pioneers of private Physiotherapy practice, Lewis was highly regarded by both his many patients, some of whom travelled 4-5 hours each way to consult him, and by his peers.
Following his passing in 2004, the Lewis Ewart Lewis Physiotherapy Scholarship was established to help disadvantaged Physiotherapy students. This scholarship realised Lewis' ambition of supporting and assisting promising local students to enter the profession in which he took great pride and devoted most of his professional life.
