Applications are open to those who:

Program Support

The scholarship will be paid in two instalments of $5,000. To receive the payments, recipients must show evidence of ongoing enrolment past the university census date. For part-time students, payment will be made on a pro-rata rate. 

Support and mentorship for successful recipients is throughout the Scholarship Program. 

Application Process

NACCHO has established a Selection Panel consisting of several Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander health professionals and representatives, including pharmacists, with sector knowledge. The Panel, in consultation with the recipients, will consider the most appropriate type of mentorship, including the frequency and modes of contact. 

Eligible applicants are to submit:

  • completed application form
  • CV/resume with 2 referees and letters of support (if available)

Applicants must declare in their application if they are currently receiving any other scholarship or bursary that contributes to university fees or study expenses. 

Previous recipients may reapply.
