The Department of Health and Human Services administers a scholarship scheme for Tasmanian Aboriginal students studying an accredited health or human services related undergraduate course at University, or an accredited health or human services related Vocational Education and Training course. The scholarship scheme aims to address the under-representation of Aboriginal people in health professions, and other health and human services related occupations.
The scholarship is open to students who are currently studying or who intend studying in the year in which they apply. Three new scholarships are awarded each year with a total maximum value of $5,000 per year of required study, up to a maximum value of $15,000 for each scholarship. They will be awarded by an Aboriginal selection panel to be formed by the department in consultation with the Office of Aboriginal Affairs.
Application details: As these may vary from year to year, please refer to the information page (see link below).
