Who can apply?

RACS Fellows, SET Trainees, IMGs and junior doctors who may be enrolled in a Master's program.

SET applicants are eligible to apply for a scholarship in anticipation of their acceptance into the SET Program. Evidence of acceptance into the program must be received by the ANZ Scholarship and Grant Coordinator by November in the year before the award commences in order to be eligible.


It is not a requirement to be enrolled in a higher degree, but the production of a systematic review and production of a peer-reviewed publication would be a minimum requirement on completion of this scholarship.

Junior doctors would need to conduct this work in conjunction with the ASERNIP-S program of RACS in Adelaide.

This would be conducted as a collaborative research project on a mutually agreed topic.

Potential applicants are asked to contact the Scholarship & Grant Coordinator to assist them in nominating supervisors.
