Considering studying a health degree in 2017? You may be eligible for a scholarship to support you in your studies.
Sam Green (pictured), one of six recipients of the 2012 David Beer Undergraduate Scholarship, put his scholarship money towards university expenses so that he could focus less on working part-time and more on his studies.
Sam decided to pursue a Bachelor of Medicine after spending time in the Army Reserves as a combat medic.
"As a student of the Hunter I want to one day give something back to our community and winning this scholarship gives me such a big advantage," he said.
This year five new 'high achiever' scholarships were introduced for students who have demonstrated academic excellence in high school and commenced a health degree. Each of these scholarships is worth up to $10,000 and some include funded national and international exchanges and conferences.
These scholarships will be continued in 2017.
