Important information about eligibility

Applicants must be a dependant of an employee who has completed a minimum of two years of full-time worked service, or equivalent hours, to be eligible for a scholarship.

A ‘dependant’ is defined as the child, or dependant of an employee, who is under 25 years of age.

Previous recipients of an Eastern Health scholarship may be eligible to receive another Eastern Health scholarship, however preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received a scholarship from Eastern Health.

Selection criteria may vary for each scholarship sponsor such as the Sister Mary Fabian Hennebury or the General Hospital Sports and Social Club scholarships, as specified in the table above.
