Australian Rotary Health - Indigenous health scholarship

 

Overview

This program is a co-operative program between the Australian Rotary Health (ARH), rotary clubs, some state and/or territory governments and the Commonwealth Government. This program commenced with the intention of training doctors to work amongst other Indigenous people, but the scope of the scheme was enlarged to permit the training, firstly of nurses, and eventually any health related profession.

The object of this program is to provide a scholarship, made available to Indigenous students studying a wide range of health subjects. This scholarship is intended to assist in the day-to-day expenses of the student during their course. The scholarship is paid in addition to the Government Abstudy allowance.

The value of each scholarship is $5,000 per year. A rotary club contributes $2,500 per year and the state or Commonwealth Government provides a similar amount. The Commonwealth Government also provides funding for the administration of the program within the ARHR office.

Application details: Closing dates may vary from year to year, please refer to the information page (link below).
