Nurses Memorial Foundation of SA Grants

Thanks to the generosity of the Nurses Memorial Foundation of South Australia Inc., we are able to offer a limited number of grants to assist CRANAplus members (registered as a nurse and/or midwife and working in a remote/rural area) to attend our courses. The funds make learning accessible by contributing to the fees and costs associated with course attendance. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses are strongly encouraged to apply.

Round 1, 2024: Now taking applications for courses being held during the first six months of 2024.

Round 2, 2024: Applications open from 1 July to 31 December 2024 for courses being held during same period.


Undergraduate Remote Placement Scholarships

Our undergraduate scholarships empower nursing, midwifery and healthcare students to experience remote health firsthand by providing up to $1000 to cover the cost of fares, travel and accommodation associated with clinical placement. They are offered in two rounds each year to current CRANAplus student members enrolled as under­grad­u­ates in a health dis­ci­pline at an Aus­tralian University.
