These scholarships are designed to encourage and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to undertake a PhD or masters by research in cardiovascular research.
The goal of this scholarship is to strengthen the capacity and workforce in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cardiovascular research.
We believe this, in turn, will have a positive impact on the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, who have increased mortality rates from heart disease than non-Indigenous Australians.
Up to 2 years for masters and up to 3 years for PhD
Stipend of $40,000 pro rata per year
Open now. Closes 24th June 2016.
