Health Professional Scholarships

Health Professional Scholarships support cardiovascular health professionals to undertake a PhD. 

While they are designed to encourage established health professionals to become active in research, recently graduated health professionals are also eligible. Applicants will be encouraged to continue their cardiovascular health practice during their PhD. 

Priority is given to health professionals working in cardiovascular healthcare, including allied health professionals, to further develop Australia’s cardiovascular health research capacity and encourage evidence-based health practice and research translation.

Health professionals who have a strong research background are uniquely placed to champion and lead the translation of research into practice, with the potential to produce immediate health outcomes.


  • Any health professional engaged in (or planning to be engaged in) cardiovascular research. This includes but is not limited to general practitioners, clinicians, cardiologists, nurses, physiotherapists, pharmacists, other health processionals and health service managers.
  • Any area of cardiovascular health research including clinical, biomedical, public health and health services research.
