ACEN 2013 Student Scholarships opens

PDF version

In 2013 ACEN is offering five scholarships, each valued at $1,500, to assist students undertaking placements.

The aim of the 2013 ACEN Student Scholarship is to support students who will undertake a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) activity in a regional or remote area of Australia* as part of their undergraduate or postgraduate education.

The scholarships are open to final year students in all disciplines from institutions that are financial members of ACEN. This list is updated periodically.

The placement must be:

  • Undertaken in 2013 in Inner Regional, Outer Regional, Remote and Very Remote locations* which requires students to relocate from their home address
  • Fulltime (4-5 days per week, for a minimum of three weeks duration)
  • Within Australia.

The information provided by you in Stage 1, will assist the committee to draw up a short-list of applicants who meet the criteria.

If you are short-listed, you will be asked to provide two pages of information supporting your scholarly achievement during 2013 OR if you are yet to take your WIL placement in 2013 you may provide evidence of your scholarly achievement on a WIL placement in 2012.

Such evidence may include a supervisor’s report, co-ordinator report or evaluation. This enables ACEN to determine how well you use the WIL placement to improve your education in your chosen career. This information must be provided by 31 June 2013.

Successful applicants will be notified by 29th July, 2013.

*The abovementioned Regional and Remote locations are those found in RA2- RA5 on the map: http://doctorconnect.gov.au/internet/otd/publishing.nsf/Content/locator
