A limited number of scholarships of $500 each are available to support delegates’ attendance at the 2016 National Hepatitis Health Promotion Conference.
Even though every attempt will be made to assist as many applicants as possible, we regret that there will only be a limited quantity of scholarships available. Applicants are therefore strongly encouraged to seek other funding as well.
Scholarship applications are due by COB Friday 25 March 2016
Who is eligible?
You are eligible to receive a scholarship if you meet any of the following criteria:
- You are employed as a health or community worker, working directly with people with, or at risk of viral hepatitis
- You are employed as a health or community worker who carries out workforce development in the area of viral hepatitis
- You are involved in planning and managing programs and services to help prevent viral hepatitis transmission and/or to meet the needs of people living with viral hepatitis
- You are employed in a voluntary capacity to undertake work directed towards preventing the transmission of viral hepatitis or supporting the health needs of people with viral hepatitis
- Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of perceived benefit of conference attendance to the work of the scholarship applicant as judged by Hepatitis Australia.
All scholarship applicants will be notified via email by COB 8 April 2016 as to the success of their application.
Terms and Conditions
Scholarship payment will be made directly to the organisation that employs the scholarship winner following acceptance of the scholarship.
Payment method for successful applicants working in a volunteer capacity will be negotiated on an individual level.
Acceptance of the scholarship will be taken as agreement to attend the conference. Scholarship recipients are required to notify Hepatitis Australia as soon as possible if circumstances change and they are no longer able to attend the conference. In the case of non-attendance by a recipient, scholarship money is to be returned to Hepatitis Australia.
