Indigenous Development and Training Awards


The purpose of the Indigenous Development and Training Awards is to build long-term high-quality clinical, public and allied health capacity with the ultimate aim to improve outcomes in the five target themes supported by Hot North: skin health, respiratory health, antimicrobial resistance, chronic diseases, and vector borne and emerging diseases.

Awards may support:

  • Development opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders studying or working in the health sector in northern Australia (awards of between $1,000 – $10,000)
  • Indigenous Traineeships leading to VET qualifications (award of up to $25,000)

Applications now open for 2019.
