The Health Workforce Scholarship Program (HWSP) is designed to further develop the skills of the Northern Territory's rural and remote health workforce. Under the program, eligible primary health care professionals can receive up to $20,000 to put towards upskilling.
Health professionals working in medicine, nursing or allied health, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners, who provide services within a rural or remote primary health care setting are eligible to apply. For the purpose of the HWSP, rural and remote locations are areas classified as Modified Monash Model (MMM) 3-7. Check your eligibility.
Scholarships of up to $10,000 per year for a maximum of 2 years ($20,000 excluding GST total) are available to eligible health professionals to attain a postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma, Master’s Degree or PhD. Scholarships can be used to cover or partially cover the cost of postgraduate course fees and course-related expenses such as accommodation and transport where appropriate.
