RURAL AMBASSADOR STUDENT GRANT
The RWAV Rural Ambassador Student Grant aims to enhance opportunities for students interested in rural health to participate in, or lead, events and activities that promote rural health. The grant aims to raise awareness of the opportunities available in rural healthcare to young people.
This is a crucial step in attracting and retaining a future rural health workforce.
UCAT Exam Preparation Grant
Studies show that individuals who have experience living in rural and regional locations often remain or return to these areas to pursue their professional careers. To address the health professional shortage in rural and regional Victoria, RWAV is encouraging year 11 or 12 students living in rural and regional priority areas (see Priority Areas Matrix for eligible locations), interested in studying medicine, the opportunity to participate in preparation classes for the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT).
In partnership with MedEntry, RWAV is offering grants that cover the two-day UCAT preparation workshops. These will run as interactive, live stream online events in 2022. Successful applicants will also have access to MedEntry’s online resources well in advance of the workshop.
RWAV RURAL CLINICAL PLACEMENT GRANT
The RWAV Rural Clinical Placement Grants support medical, nursing, and allied health students to undertake placements in regional or rural Victoria. We are currently accepting applications for placements taking place in the month of April, May, and June.
