Give Them Wings scholarship program

Give Them WIngs

Recruiting and retaining allied health professionals in rural areas is a long-standing problem in Australia and overseas, and strategic action is required to grow and better equip Victoria’s rural workforce.

In active recognition of this problem, RFDS Victoria offers rural students support through the Give Them Wings Scholarships. Since 2012, these scholarships have been awarded annually to first year university students from regional and rural Victoria who are studying nursing or allied health.

In 2022, each scholarship is valued at $5,000 to assist with university expenses, and included the opportunity to experience a day in the life of a Flying Doctor – either on the road or in the air.

Applications for the Give Them Wings scholarship program 2022 closed on Friday 29 April.
