Health Workforce Scholarship Program

The RDWA is providing scholarships and bursaries for medical, nursing and allied health professionals working in rural and remote South Australia through the Health Workforce Scholarship Program.    

This program is designed to improve access to health services for people living in remote and rural areas.  It is available to eligible medical, nursing and allied health professionals working in primary health care.

Scholarships are available for formal postgraduate studies and will be awarded for up to two years. 

Bursaries for training and up-skilling will be awarded as one-off payments to cover the cost of training or course fees, and/or cover or partially cover training related expenses.

The Applicant Information provides further details about eligibility, assessment of applications and conditions of awards, and can be viewed here.

Applications for scholarships and bursaries are now closed.

If you have questions or would like to discuss how this program may be able to support you, or you would like to be notified when the next round opens, please contact us.
