Schülke Scholarship

Schülke Australia Rural & Remote Scholarship

Thanks to the generous support of Schülke Australia, the Australian College for Infection Prevention and Control (ACIPC) is pleased to announce the 2018 Schülke Australia Scholarship.

A significant inhibitor for people working in rural and remote areas of Australia in attending the ACIPC Annual Conference is the associated travel and accommodation costs.

The Schülke Australia 2018 Scholarship is designed to help alleviate the travel & accommodation costs for a professional working in a rural or remote setting, so they may attend the 2018 ACIPC Annual Conference.

Attendance at the conference will enable professionals with infection prevention and control responsibilities to acquire, develop and maintain knowledge which can be shared amongst colleagues upon their return home. It also provides the opportunity for professionals to network with like-minded colleagues.

This scholarship is open to both members & non-members of the Australasian College for Infection Prevention & Control (ACIPC).

Applications Close Friday 26th October 2018.
