Rural scholarship winners announced


young pharmacists should go rural, says Gill: regional Australian landscape with windmil

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia has announced the recipients of the Rural Pharmacy Scholarship Scheme 2017

A total of 39 students from across the country (see attached for details) have been awarded the prestigious scholarship.

The Rural Pharmacy Scholarships provide financial support to students from rural and remote communities to encourage them to undertake undergraduate or graduate studies in pharmacy at university.

Scholarship holders receive $10,000 each year, for up to four years of study, to help cover the costs associated with study away from home.

They also participate in a mentor program aimed at reinforcing the students’ ties to rural and regional Australia.

“Scholarship holders receive financial and mentoring support to ensure they get the most out of their university studies – and the fact that they are encouraged to conduct their professional careers in rural Australia is fantastic,” says National President of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia, George Tambassis.

“The mentoring program helps the students develop a learning plan and also provides support to students outside the university environment.  It’s an important support for students who have come from rural and remote areas and are studying away from their family base.”

Scholarship holders are encouraged to pursue a career in pharmacy in a rural or remote area of Australia after graduation.  During their studies they also have a role in promoting rural pharmacy as a career choice to secondary school students.

The Rural Pharmacy Scholarship Scheme is an initiative of the Rural Pharmacy Workforce Programme, established in recognition of the key role pharmacists play in maintaining the health of all Australians, particularly those in rural and remote areas.

This project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health as part of the Sixth Community Pharmacy Agreement.
