The Robinvale District Health Services – Health Scholarships were created to provide financial assistance to students from Robinvale/Euston and Manangatang districts who are or are about to undertake career development as health professionals. Students will be required to demonstrate an interest in a rural career and preference will be given to those with an expectation of returning to the local area. RDHS Health Scholarships assist students to complete full time / part time tertiary study in their chosen field and assist in meeting expenses associated with these studies.
