Scholarships worth $3000 each for health professionals

HEALTH professionals should hurry to get their applications in for one of two scholarships valued at $3000 to further their learning and professional development practises.

Provided by the Fraser Coast Health Professionals Local Education and Research Nexus (FCHP:LEARN), applications for the scholarships close on Tuesday, March 3, and can be emailed to Julie.martyn@usq.edu.au.

University of Southern Queensland Fraser Coast senior nursing lecturer Julie Martyn said the scholarships were available to people who had attended at least three LEARN workshops since the program started in January 2014.

"The scholarships will be awarded in March and September with written applications that address the selection criteria being accepted in February and August," Ms Martyn said.

To apply, applicants should submit a brief personal statement, no more than one page, providing a description of their career goals and how the scholarship will assist in developing and improving health care practises.

Each awardee will be funded for a USQ Professional Development Single Course.

They will also be subsidised for the cost of their learning materials.
