Nursing and Midwifery Scholarships

About the scholarships

NT Health is offering scholarships to nurses and midwives who are completing post-registration studies. The scholarships are available to nurses and midwives continuously employed by NT Health for two years or more in a nursing or midwifery position greater than 0.5 full time equivalent (FTE).

The aim of the scholarships is to provide NT Health nurses and midwives with financial assistance to complete a course of study leading to an academic qualification. Scholarships are awarded through a competitive selection process and not all applicants will be awarded a scholarship.
