Establish an Eastern Health Staff Development Scholarship

With the generous support of philanthropists, Eastern Health Foundation and the Learning and Teaching directorate are proud to support staff who wish to continue their learning throughout their career.

This programs offers and opportunity for our clinical and non-clinical staff to secure a scholarship prior to commencing a program each year. 39 Scholarships were generously funded in 2020 from individuals, businesses and community groups invested in the development of a capable, responsive, diverse and supported workforce at Eastern Health.  

The program also has the potential to assist staff who may not have been able to consider undertaking further studies due to financial constraints.

Only with philanthropic support can Scholarships be offered to support further study in an accredited course that will enhance staff capability to perform their current role effectively, safely and efficiently.

The study undertaken could maintain or expand the staff member’s scope of practice or capability in relation to your current position at Eastern Health and may be clinical or non-clinical.
