The Australian Indigenous scholarship is designed to encourage and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to undertake a PhD or Masters (by research) in cardiovascular research. The duration of the scholarship is up to 2 years for Masters and up to 3 years for PhD, with a stipend of $40,000 pro rata per annum.
The Heart Foundation believes that strengthening the research capacity and workforce in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cardiovascular research will, in turn, have a broader impact on the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Applicants must be identified Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Applications for 2016 close: Friday 24 June
