The Health Workforce Scholarship Program (HWSP) is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health and is designed to improve access to services needed in remote and rural areas across Australia by supporting an increase in skills, capacity and/or scope of practice. The HWSP provides professional development support to health professionals in rural, regional and remote Australia.
Under the HWSP, health professionals working in rural and remote locations (MMM 3-7) are eligible to apply for scholarships and bursaries to pursue further education or attend training courses. HWSP funding is directly related to training and upskilling health professionals who will provide services to rural and remote areas, and assessed on the relevance, value for money and the likelihood to meet identified primary healthcare needs of the community.
