Ida West Aboriginal Health Scholarship

Respected Tasmanian Aboriginal Elder, Aunt Ida West passed away in September 2003. Aunty Ida had been a long time campaigner and advocate for her people and worked very closely with politicians and Government officials.

Aunty Ida is widely recognised for the significant contribution she made to social justice and reconciliation both in Tasmania and on a national level.

To pay tribute to the life and work of Aunty Ida, the Department of Health has established an annual Scholarship in her name. The Ida West Aboriginal Health Scholarship provides financial assistance to Aboriginal students completing a formal qualification at university or a vocational education training organisation in a health or human services related field.

The scholarship aims to address the under-representation of Aboriginal people in health professions and other health and human services related occupations.

Scholarships are awarded each year with a total maximum value per scholarship of $5,000 per year up to a maximum value of $15,000 for each scholarship.

The Ida West Aboriginal Health Scholarship applications for 2021 are now open and close on Friday, 22 January 2021.
