The scholarship program provides delegates who would not normally be able to attend the conference with support for registration, travel, and accommodation. These scholarships will be open to applicants who are currently employed in a care capacity including registered nurse, enrolled nurse, personal carer, GP, allied health, Aboriginal health worker, aged care worker, hospice staff or a formal registered volunteer of an organisation in Australia or one of our Oceanic partner countries.
