Koori Tertiary Scholarship Program

Justice Health (External link) is a business unit within the department responsible for overseeing the delivery of health services to Victorian prisoners.

Justice Health supports the diversity and responsiveness of the Victorian health sector through increasing workforce participation of Aboriginal people in the health sector, and recognises the important role Aboriginal clinicians have in improving the health of the Victorian Aboriginal community.

Justice Health is offering two Koori Tertiary Scholarships to commence in Semester One of 2016.

The Justice Health Koori Tertiary Scholarships will provide financial support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to undertake full time study in a health related field. Each scholarship consists of a fortnightly allowance paid to recipients throughout the course of their studies and equates to approximately $40,000 per annum. Where possible, recipients will be assisted to secure work placements with one of Justice Health's prison health service providers.
