The University of Newcastle Fully Funded Study Grant in Australia 2022 – NEW


Closing Dates: 28th February 2022

Great news! The University of Newcastle is elated to offer the Betty Josephine Fyffe Rural Allied Health Scholarship to all eligible and outstanding international applicants for the 2022/2023 academic session.

Betty Fyffe was a local Tamworth girl who grew up in the surrounds of her father’s chemist shops. Betty had an absolute passion for Nursing and had strong feelings for St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney where she trained and spent many years providing nursing treatment.

Betty leaves this legacy as her way of trying to improve the education of doctors, nurses and allied health professionals in training with hope that some will return to the country areas to practice their profession.

We hope that all recipients of a Betty Josephine Fyffe Scholarship be as passionate about their career as she was about nursing.
