The Rosemary Bryant AO Research Centre, a partner of the University of South Australia, has launched the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Master of Research Grant for Nurses and/or Midwives who are interested in undertaking a higher degree program, open to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses and/or midwives nationally to further their study.
The grant will provide up to $20,000 over two years to assist with the successful candidate’s travel, accommodation, conference expenses, meals and living expenses while they are studying at UniSA. This exciting opportunity for an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurse and/or midwife to undertake study as an external student through the Rosemary Bryant AO Research Centre in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of South Australia is open now, for study to commence in 2020. Research topics undertaken by the successful candidate should focus on a key issue or challenge faced by the local community. Funding is kindly donated by the Rosemary Bryant Foundation.
The grant aims to:
Support research leadership opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives
Support access to high-quality postgraduate research education and qualifications
Foster local leadership and knowledge networks for nurses and midwives to achieve their professional goals
Enhance translation of research into real-world impact for better evidence-based healthcare.
WSU is offering a new scholarship program for ASTI students wanting to study an HDR degree at WSU. Scholarships will be awarded to PhD candidates where the students will receive $50,000 per year, for three years to support living costs. Tuition fees will be supported by an Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) Fees Offset.
