Applications Now Open

The Health Workforce Scholarship Program (HWSP) is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health. The program is designed to improve access to services needed in rural and remote areas across Australia by supporting an increase in skills, capacity and/or scope of practice.

The HWSP will be available to eligible medical, nursing and allied health professionals working in primary health care, not employed by the Tasmanian government and located in, or providing services to areas categorised as Modified Monash 3-7 under the Modified Monash Model.

Scholarships/bursaries made to health professionals must be directly related to training and up-skilling health professionals who will provide services within the above mentioned areas and be justifiable against the perceived workforce benefit of the training.

Applications for the first round will open on 20 November 2017 and close on 14 December 2017. Applications should be made by submitting the HR+ HWSP Scholarship or Bursary Application to scholarships@hrplustas.com.au 

Guidelines and further information on the HWSP are available here
