Bush Bursary & CWA Scholarships

The Bush Bursaries and the County Women’s Association (CWA) Scholarships provide selected medical students in NSW/ACT with $3,000 each to assist with costs associated with their studies. In return, students spend two weeks on a rural placement in country NSW during their university holidays. The placement combines the enjoyable aspects of country life and rural medicine.
