Nursing and Allied Health Scholarships


Administered by the Services for Australian Rural and Remote Allied health (SARRAH), these scholarships operate under NAHSSS, an Australian Government initiative designed to assist jobseekers and young people to pursue a career in nursing or allied health professions.

There are four scholarships on offer that are applicable to the dental profession:

  • Undergraduate (Entry-Level) worth up to $10,000 per year for three years for full-time students and $5000 per year for part-time students
  • Clinical Placement which provides funding up to $11,000 for a maximum six weeks placement in a rural or remote Australian community.
  • Continuing Professional Development, worth up to $1500 per scholarship, which allows allied health professionals to attend short courses, conferences, non-award post-graduate modules and clinical placements.
  • Postgraduate, which provides $7,500 to $30,000 for health professionals to undertake postgraduate studies at a recognised university or educational institution.
