Australian Rotary Health - Indigenous health scholarship

 

Overview

This scholarship is funded by a co-operative program between Australian Rotary Health (ARH), rotary clubs, some state and territory governments and the Australian Government. The program commenced with the intention of training doctors to work amongst other Indigenous people, but has widened it's scope to include the training of nurses and any health related profession. The program aims to assist students to gain an education which enables them to use their education for the benefit of other Indigenous people.

The scholarship assists Indigenous students with their day-to-day expenses while they undertake a course in a wide range of health related professions. The scholarship is paid in addition to the Abstudy allowance.

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

Application details: Closing dates may vary from year to year. Please refer to the links below for current closing dates and further information.
