Applications Invited for 2021 AMA Indigenous Medical Scholarship
Applications are now being sought for the 2021 AMA Indigenous Medical Scholarship from eligible Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students who are currently studying medicine at an Australian university.
Applicant must be enrolled full-time in a medical degree and have completed at least their first year of medical studies. The Scholarship will apply for the full duration of a medical degree, subject to review. Preference will be given to applicants who do not already hold any other scholarship or bursary.
Previous recipients of the $10,000 a year scholarship have gone on to become prominent leaders in health and medicine, including Associate Professor Kelvin Kong, Australia’s first Aboriginal surgeon.
“This Scholarship is a tangible step towards growing the Indigenous medical workforce,” AMA President, Dr Omar Khorshid, said.
The 2020 recipient will be announced next month.
