Each year, ACT Health offers two scholarship rounds for public sector nurses and midwives to undertake formal award level postgraduate programs of study. The scholarships support the ongoing professional education and skill development of nurses & midwives across the public health service. Scholarships for postgraduate tuition fees are offered to support clinical, education, research, leadership & management scopes of practice. Courses that do not lead to a qualification directly related to an applicant’s scope of practice will not be supported.
The allocation of scholarships will be prioritised to areas of need as determined by ACT Health. Areas of need are subject to change and may differ from year to year.
If you hold a current scholarship with ACT Health and your program of study will be ongoing in 2020, you are required to submit a continuing application in 2020.
If you are planning to enrol in new postgraduate programs of study in 2020, please submit a New Scholarship Application.
