Grants for GPs & Nurses - are you eligible?
To help lessen the financial burden of keeping up with CPD, rural and remote health professionals (MMM 3-7) who would normally be required to travel considerable distances to attend courses, can access a range of state-based funding.
These scholarships and bursaries are designed to help health professionals in rural and remote Australia retain and enhance their skills, capacity and scope of practice. Funding is available to support the costs of completing postgraduate courses, short courses, workshops, conferences and seminars.
These grants are available through either the Rural Workforce Agencies Health Workforce Scholarship Program Australia or the RACGP's Rural Procedural Grants Program (RPGP).
Many qualified health professionals have been surprised to discover they are eligible for these grants (up to $10,000 per year). Here's a list of grants currently on offer and more information about eligibility and the application guidelines:
