The Bill Raby Diabetes Fellowship is auspiced by the Diabetes Association of the NT Inc., trading as Healthy Living NT. An independent Board of Governors appointed by, and reporting to the Healthy Living NT Board oversees the operations and advises on the strategic directions of the Fellowship.

Membership of the Board of Governors is the sole prerogative of the Healthy Living NT Board. Members are appointed on the basis of their expertise/eminence in their particular field on an honorary basis for a minimum term of 3 years. The Board of Governors is comprised of community members and the President of Healthy Living NT.  The functions and responsibilities of the Board of Governors include:

  • Acting as sole arbiter on applications, award of Fellowships, and assessment of outcomes.
  • Providing strategic advice on the development and direction of the Fellowship, and 
  • Assisting with promotion of the Fellowship. 

The Fellowship is supported by Healthy Living NT through:

  • Commitment to minimum Fellowship funding of $20,000 per annum 
  • Acceptance of establishment, implementation and on-going administration costs and GST liability on awarded Fellowships.
  • Provision of Fellowship Secretariat, administration and promotion and financial management activities.

Fellowship Tax Implications

The liability of a Fellow/recipient for Income Tax is a matter of decision by the Commissioner of Taxation and the Fellow/recipient.  The Fellowship or Healthy Living NT has no responsibility or authority in this matter.

GST liability will be borne by Healthy Living NT and will not affect the amount of funds allocated to the Fellow for their Fellowship. Applicants who do not have an ABN will be required to sign a “Statement by a Supplier” to exempt Fellowship funding from GST.
