Allied Health Scholarship Database
Last year the Allied Health Portfolio gathered data on allied health scholarships to collate a central webpage on the NRHSN website to assist allied health students source financial assistance for rural clinical placements. The list includes national, state and university based scholarships in a user friendly format. We want to keep this list up to date - If you know of any scholarships available for allied health students in you state, Rural Health Club or university course, please let us know.
Do you have an Allied Health Rep at your Club?
Could all RHC's please email the Allied Health Portfolio with the name, course of study and contact email of their nominated Allied Health Club Rep. Please note that Club Reps MUST be studying an Allied Health course; we appreciate the enthusiasm of other disciplines wanting to get involved but need to ensure as much Allied Health representation as possible.
