If you were unsuccessful in the first round of scholarships, we encourage you to re-apply in the next round provided you meet the scholarship guidelines. 

We know that accessing CPD may be challenging when you work in a rural or remote location due to the costs associated with registration, travel and accommodation. We want to make it easier for you to keep your skills up to date and maximise your opportunities to network with peers through attending relevant, face-to-face CPD. 

Scholarships can be used towards the cost of registration/conference attendance, associated travel and accommodation.

Rural Health West offers a number of relevant professional development opportunities for nursing and allied health professionals.

The Continuing Professional Development Scholarship for Rural Health Professionals has been made possible through funding from the Australian Government Department of Health.
