Australian Rotary Health Medical students are funded by a sponsoring Rotary Club to undertake a year-long rural/regional placement and experience what these facilities have to offer.   The scholarships provide students with an opportunity to pursue a career in rural/regional Australia when they graduate. The scholarship encourages and influences the medical students to consider pursuing a medical career in rural Australia upon graduation or following postgraduate medical studies. The resipient has the benefit of enjoying the fellowship of Rotarians and experience the aspects of rural community life.
The Rotary Club of St Peters pays for a Scholarship worth A$5,000 each.
