The Australian Medical Association (AMA) is currently seeking applications for its Indigenous Peoples’ Medical Scholarship programme 2017, meant for the assistance and encouragement of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people studying for a medical degree at an Australian university.

The scholarship aims to increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander doctors in Australia by supporting Indigenous students to complete a medical degree.

Benefit

The value of the Scholarship is $10,000 per annum (provided in one lump sum each year).
