A4WH proudly provides annual scholarships for medical and midwifery training. All scholarships include full return airfares, accommodation and training.
Midwifery Ultrasound Scholarship
Two Nepalese midwives are selected each year to travel to Australia to develop further skills in antenatal ultrasound. Over a four week period the successful midwives undergo more advanced training with Port Macquarie Ultrasound.
Nepalese Medical Student Scholarship
In the near future, a final year student doctor from Dhulikhel Hospital in Nepal will be selected to travel to Australia to spend six weeks of study at the Port Macquarie campus of University of NSW Medical School. The successful student will undergo more advanced training in skills of obstetrics & gynaecology.
Australian Student Scholarships
Each year a scholarship is available for one medical student from University of NSW Port Macquarie Rural Clinical School to travel to Nepal to assist in the activities of a treatment camp. The scholarship provides an all expenses return trip to Nepal. Applications for this scholarship open on September 1 each year.
Local student Scholarships
A4WH is providing a secondary school scholarship to a local Nepalese girl, Anju BK. Anju, aged 13, won the hearts of the A4WH team during the March 2011 surgical treatment camp when she provided exceptional care during their stay. Anju’s education fees will allow her to travel to Kathmandu to attend a secondary school of very high academic standards, allowing Anju to reach her full potential.
