These scholarships provide important financial support to two students from rural and isolated backgrounds who are enrolled in the Graduate Certificate of Nursing Practice (Cancer and Palliative Care).
These scholarships support for travel and study expenses to facilitate engagement in this program, providing important workforce development in regional and remote nursing.
Ms Alison Hyams is a retired nurse specialising in oncology, trained at St Vincent’s Hospital and worked for most of her career at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. The scholarship is named in honour of her mother, Patricia Hyams.
Two scholarships are available for 2018. Further information here.
