Rural scholarships for health professions
Many externally-funded scholarships are available to students living or working in regional and rural areas. Most tertiary institutions also offer a range of scholarships and grants. (See Monash scholarships for example.) Some scholarships can be hard to find - ask the institution you are applying to what they offer students from rural areas.
