Grants for Nursing & Allied Health Webinar Q&A

Professionals who perform locum work are eligible to apply for the Locum stream of the Health Workforce Scholarship Program.

Correct, you need to apply and be approved for RWAV grants for CPD prior to beginning the training.

There will be an information session for this grant on the 16th of March, and registrations for this session will open soon. Applications will open on the 1st of March, with information also being released on the RWAV website.

Each individual will need to apply for the scholarship program independently, but this can be used to participate in the same training. Multiple staff from the same organisation can apply for the Health Workforce Scholarship Program.

MMM is Modified Monash Model – it is a measure of how regional you are. AMS is Aboriginal Medical Service. ACCO is Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation.

You can search your location or postcode here to determine your MMM location https://www.modifiedmonashmodel.com/

You need to have registered but not begun the training in order to successfully apply for the Health Workforce Scholarship Program. This is a reimbursement grant, so you will need to pay for the training once you have been approved for the scholarship, and you can claim for reimbursement from RWAV.

The training is run over two sessions (morning and afternoon) in the one day, running from 10 am to 3 pm.

The calendar for cultural safety training sessions is located on the RWAV website: https://www.rwav.com.au/events/category/cultural-safety-training/

If your service is non-state funded then you may be eligible, if it is fully state-funded then you are not eligible.

You can either contact us at grants@rwav.com.au or use ABN look up to tell you if your organisation is state-funded.
