Frequently Asked Questions – and their answers

Who can apply for a scholarship?
If you are a Wounds Australia member(full individual, associate or life) you can apply for a number of scholarships. Only corporate industry and corporate organisation members are ineligible.

I’ve only just become a member this year. How long do I have to wait?
There is no wait. It just means you can only claim up to $1000. Those who have held their membership for more than three consecutive years can claim over this amount.

What can I spend the money on?
The scholarship aims to support members with conference or short course registration fees, travel costs associated with attending a conference, a short course or the Watching Others Work (WOW) program and accommodation expenses associated with the period of the conference, short course or WOW program. We couldn’t possibly list everything, so put in the application, just in case!

Are there any courses or activities that I can't apply for?
The only thing restricted is formal education. You CAN NOT apply for funds relating to undergraduate or postgraduate units or university courses.

So what’s the catch?
You will need to write an article for Wounds Australia’s magazine, DeepesTissues about your activity, so we can share knowledge and encourage other members to apply for scholarships.  Wounds Australia also reserves the right to publish grant and scholarship recipients on its website, newsletters, and in other forums.
Can I apply every year?

Yes, you can, but preference will be given to those who have not received a scholarship before. The team that assesses the applications look at this and also other things such as if the person applying is from a rural or remote location, to help rank the applications.

Am I guaranteed to get the money if I apply?
Like with any scholarship application process, there is no guarantee. Your application will be judged according to the criteria set out on the scholarships web page along with the other applicants’ submissions.
Wounds Australia works hard to give away all of the funds allocated for each scholarship period, but it does take time to get through the assessment process, so have a plan B, just in case.
