Tertiary Health Education Grants

Since 2007, The Mount Gambier and District Tertiary Health Education Grants have supported residents from Mount Gambier and the surrounding district who need to leave the region to undertake university studies in health skill areas required within our community.

Each year, a limited number of grants are offered, building our regional capacity to generate an increased presence of skilled and trained health professionals.

The grants deliver a unique community-led response to local essential skill shortages within the health sector.

The grant is available to support students with costs directly associated with their tertiary studies such as accommodation, text books, uniforms, selection tests and communication costs.

Applications from eligible students close on 31 March each year.

For more information about the grants, please contact Council on 8721 2555.
