Towards Allied Health Rural Placement Scholarships (TAHRPS)

TAHPRS is a scholarship scheme run by TROHPIQ and supported by SARRAH; it’s a $500 bursary intended to help with some of the costs associated with undertaking a rural placement. In exchange, TAHRPS scholars provide a reflection on their rural experience upon completion. Reflections will be published on the TROHPIQ website, where students considering a rural placement can access reflections from a particular discipline or location.


Date applications open TBA (watch for an announcement!)

    To whom it may concern,
    I would like to apply for a rural scholarship however, I have not been able to find the TAHRPS application form on the TROHPIQ or Blackboard sites.

    Would it be possible for you to advise me on this matter?

    Kind regards
