Former HPCA  ProCare CEO, Cary Lee, Awarded Newcastle's Vice-Chancellor Higher Degree Scholarship  

Monday 3th, Feb - 2020

We wish to congratulate Cary Lee, on being part of the inaugural cohort awarded the new University of Newcastle's Vice-Chancellor Higher Degree by Research Scholarship.

More about the Research Scholarship 

The Vice-Chancellor's Higher Degree by Research Training Scholarships are a prestigious award to support selected applicants, who have demonstrated a proven capacity for research, academic merit and potential to develop the requisite skills to make an ongoing impact in their academic careers.

These scholarships are a new category of scholarship that includes the opportunity for an academic training experience beyond the research experience. The Academic Career Preparation (ACP) pathway associated with this scholarship scheme enables candidates to develop a portfolio of academic experiences, including core competencies in university teaching.


Cary's research is around consumer collecting behavior, which leads to the use of random reward mechanisms in traditional physical goods and modern digital items, the latter of which has been subject to recent legislative debate and inquiry in Australia and internationally. 


It is with sadness that he is leaving ProCare/HPCA, but we wish him all the best as a full-time Ph.D. student.  We thank Cary for his contribution to the organisation and to the community at large.
