Undergraduate scholarships

Scholarships are offered to full time students currently studying or about to commence an undergraduate degree at university in a relevant discipline, and who have resided in rural South Australia prior to undertaking their tertiary education.

A Country Health SA scholarship provides students with $5000 per year paid in two half payments of $2500 for up to 4 years study for their undergraduate degree.

Scholarship recipients are required to work for Country Health SA upon completion of their undergraduate degree for a period equivalent to the period of scholarship funding they receive.

Scholarships may be awarded for the following disciplines employed within a rural health unit:

  • registered nursing
  • physiotherapy
  • dietetics
  • podiatry.

Allied health students please note: applications will be accepted for both undergraduate and graduate entry courses. The course must lead to the student, upon graduation, being fully qualified to commence clinical practice.
