Indigenous Peoples' medical scholarship



This scholarship is offered by the Australian Medical Association and is open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are currently studying medicine.

The scholarship commences from the second year of the recipient's medical degree. The recipient must be enrolled at an Australian medical school at the time of application, and have either successfully completed the first year of a medical degree or be undertaking their first year of medicine in which case results for the first year will be sought before any award is made. In awarding the scholarship, preference will be given to applicants who do not already hold any other substantial scholarship.

The scholarship will be awarded for a full course of study, subject to review at the end of each year. The value of the scholarship is $9,000 per annum, paid in a lump sum. Applications usually close at the end of January each year.
