Scholarships

We are very pleased to announce that thanks to the support of the NSW Ministry of Health, Palliative Care NSW is able to offer 50 scholarships to regional and rural based nurses and allied health staff to cover one day of their conference registration. 

To be eligible for a scholarship, applicants need to register by 15 June 2018 and be a nurse or an allied health employee of one of the following LHDs: Far West, Hunter New England, Mid North Coast, Murrumbidgee, Northern NSW, Southern NSW and Western NSW.

We can only offer these scholarships on a first come – first served basis. Priority will be given to NSW Health staff who are self-funding their own attendance in recognition that some delegates will be able to receive support from their Local Health District (LHDs).
