Seventy-six scholarships worth $5,000 each – with a total value of $380,000 − are available for commencing and continuing students who study a range of health courses at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in 2019.
The Three Rivers University Department of Rural Health (UDRH) at CSU in Wagga Wagga aims to increase the recruitment and retention of nursing, midwifery, allied health, and dentistry health professionals across regional NSW.
Director of the Three Rivers UDRH Ms Christine Howard (pictured left) said, “One of our strategies is the provision of scholarships to support students from our rural footprint to undertake health studies at Charles Sturt University.
“We believe the best way of improving our local health workforce is to train and recruit locals who may be more likely to take up employment in our region upon graduation.
“These accommodation scholarships are available to undergraduate health students from within the Three Rivers UDRH footprint (pictured below) to assist with on-campus accommodation costs at CSU in Albury-Wodonga, Dubbo, Orange, or Wagga Wagga.
“Whether you are a new health student or continuing, there may be a scholarship for you, but hurry and get your application in, because applications close Friday 14 December 2018.”
