Medical Rural Bonded Scholarships

Medical Rural Bonded ScholarshipsScholarship recipients agree to work for up to six continuous years (less any credit obtained through scaling) in a rural or remote area of Australia after completing their medical training as a specialist. The JMP is allocated a small number of these scholarships. Each scholarship is worth over $25,000 a year. The scholarship is tax free and is indexed annually. A scaling system will reward those willing to work in the most remote locations of Australia.

Applicants will be able to lodge an MRBS Expression of Interest when they lodge their direct online university application. Only applicants who are eligible for final selection and who lodge the Expression of Interest by the designated closing date will be considered.

If you are applying for admission to the MD-JMP in 2015 you will be able to check if you have lodged an Expression of Interest for a Medical Rural Bonded Scholarship by going to the Review Submitted Application page after applications have opened in August. 

If you wish to update your application to include an Expression of Interest for a Medical Rural Bonded Scholarship please email your request to Tracey Bristow, remembering to include your UMAT Number and date of birth.
