Advanced Community Care Association Honours Scholarship

The Advanced Community Care Association (ACCA) was formed to promote and implement safe alternatives to unnecessary hospitalisation. Working with non-government organisations providing aged care and other community services, the ACCA wished to achieve the following objectives:

ACCA is offering up to 3 competitive Honours scholarships which are aimed at providing financial support to high-achieving students undertaking a Bachelor of Health Science (Honours) (IHHS). Applicants must have completed an undergraduate degree in an appropriate discipline and may be full-time or part-time students. Part-time students must complete their program in no more than two calendar years.

Applicants must have as their principal project supervisor a staff member of the Division of Health Sciences who is a member of the University's Research Register, and who is aligned with an existing or developing research concentration.

The applicant's project must be aligned to the values of Advanced Community Care Association and aimed at the further understanding of the practical clinical, organisational and financial implications of home-based alternatives to hospital care.

The focus of any projects can include, but should not be restricted to, research that is more applied than theoretical, aiming to further understandings of the practical clinical, organisational and financial implications of home-based alternatives to hospital care. This could include (among others) such diverse fields as clinical issues in home care, palliative care, community management of mental illness, health system change management, relevant ICT and informatics, and the economics of the increasing shift to home care.

Value: $7,000. The scholarship payment will be subject to satisfactory academic progress and will be paid in two equal instalments. (Pro-rata for part-time students).
