Travel Scholarship for Indigenous Paramedic and Nursing Students
About the Scholarship
The Real Response Travel Scholarship for Indigenous Paramedic and Nursing Students provides up to $3,000 AUD for one student per year to assist in covering the costs of attending a conference in relation to their degree.
The purpose of attending the conference should be to assist with the student’s research or professional development. The student does not necessarily have to be presenting a paper or poster at the conference to be eligible to apply for the grant, however it is preferred.
