The University of Wollongong is committed to rural and regional health and aims to encourage more students from these areas to pursue a career in health.
This scholarship was established to provide students from the Mudgee region (Mid-Western Region Council LGA) a chance to realise their dreams of a career in Science, Medicine and Health.
The Mudgee Region Community Scholarship, supported by Mid-Western Regional Council, Wilpinjong Coal, Moolarben Coal Operations and Club Mudgee, will provide a scholar with $2,500 per year for the duration of their degree (up to four years).
Applicants must be enrolled or intending to enrol full-time in any undergraduate degree program from within the Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health, have completed or will be completing their HSC in Mudgee, Gulgong or Kandos, and demonstrate a commitment to the local region.
The donor's hope this scholarship will open doors for students from the Mudgee Region wanting to enter into a health profession and in turn give back to the Mudgee region.
