Calling all rural medical spouses and partners – we want to support you and your community!
Living and working in rural Queensland can offer rural spouses and partners many opportunities. But the QRMFN and RDAQ Foundation also know that it can be challenging – personally and professionally.
That’s why QRMFN has teamed up with RDAQ Foundation to provide financial support to spouses and partners of rural medical practitioners to undertake individual or community-based development projects through our new Spouse Bursaries initiative.
Applications are open until September. However, applications submitted outside this period may be considered.
Individual bursaries are available of up to $1,000 for rural spouses and partners to pursue personal or professional development courses or programs.
Community bursaries are available of up to $5,000 per project for rural spouses and partners to undertake projects that have significant health and well-being benefits to the rural community, including health promotion activities, addressing emerging public health concerns and chronic diseases, volunteer projects, and local research projects.
Community bursaries are available to a spouse or partner of rural medical practitioner who is practicing in a MMM 3-7 location in Queensland. The spouse or partner does not need to be living in a MMM 3-7 location but the project must benefit a community in a MMM 3-7 location.
