Applications for the Bernie Singleton Scholarship are now open.
Succesful applicants can benefit from financial support of up to $7500.00 over 3 years, allocated at up to $2500.00 annually.
The aim of the Apunipima Bernie Singleton Scholarship is to provide support to Aboriginal and or Torres Strait Islander people from Cape York communities to undertake a full time university qualification in Health or Management related studies.
Central to the concept of the Scholarship is the development of a local, stable, sustainable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce for the communities of Cape York. It is anticipated that the provision of the Scholarship support will not only assist in building capacity, but will also impact social determinants of the people of Cape York communities, and potentially assist in facilitating generational change.
The scholarship will provide financial support to community members who have been successful in securing a place at University or are currently enrolled in University, in Health or Management related studies, such as:
- Allied Health
- Health Promotion
- Business Management eg accounting, management
- Health planning / design e.g. health economist, epidemiology
So if you identify as an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander , are from a Cape York community and are currently enrolled at University or have been accepted for placement to a University (Health or Management focused studies) then apply now.
Applications close on Friday 19 January 2018.
