Applications are now open for the undergraduate (entry-to-practice) nursing and midwifery scholarships.

These scholarships are available to all new Victorian domestic students enrolling in a professional-entry nursing or midwifery course in 2023 or 2024.

Eligible students will receive funding over four years to offset the costs incurred during study, to a maximum amount of $16,500. The scholarships are expected to support 10,000 Victorian students across the next four to five years.

All new students enrolled in an approved nursing and midwifery degree in 2023 or 2024 who meet the eligibility criteria will receive this scholarship.

This aims to remove financial obstacles and encourage students to consider nursing or midwifery as a career pathway.

We want Victorians to be the healthiest people in the world, and the care delivered by nurses and midwives is essential to delivering that vision.

Our world-class health system offers career growth, new facilities, competitive wages, job security and supportive multidisciplinary teams.
