Scholarships

There are twenty-six (26) scholarships available to UNE nursing students. Applications for most of these scholarships need to go in by June to November this year for study next year. Some go in January next year.

Apply for NSW Health Clinical Placement Grants in April and November. Scholarships may pay for 1, 2 or 3 years and you can reapply each year. To avoid disappointment apply for several scholarships and if you succeed with more than one, choose the best one for you and decline the others (given to the next applicants in line). All of the scholarships listed below require that you are a permanent resident of Australia, except the AusAID Australian Development Scholarship for international students.
