Australian Rotary Health
The Australian Rotary Health Indigenous Health Scholarship has been developed to encourage and support Indigenous students who have chosen to study nursing, medicine or allied health.
The Australian Rotary Health program is a co-operative program between the Australian Rotary Health (ARH), rotary clubs, some state and/or territory governments and the Commonwealth Government. The program commenced with the intention of training doctors to work amongst other Indigenous people, but the scope of the scheme was enlarged to permit the training, firstly of nurses, and eventually any health related profession.
The Australian Rotary Health Indigenous Health Scholarship is awarded on academic merit and financial need to an Indigenous student who has chosen to study nursing, medicine or allied health.
