Rural Australia Medical Undergraduate Scholarship (RAMUS) Scheme

Rural Australia Medical Undergraduate Scholarship (RAMUS) Scheme

The 2015 application round will open on Wednesday 5 November 2014 and close at 5pm on Monday 12 January 2015.

Scholarships for rural students studying medicine

The RAMUS Scheme is funded by the Australian Government and assists selected students with a rural background to study medicine at university. In addition to their rural background, RAMUS scholarship holders are selected on the basis of financial need and demonstrated commitment to working in rural Australia in the future.

The Scheme is aimed at attracting more doctors to rural and remote Australia.

The RAMUS Scheme supports a total of 587 current scholarship holders. Approximately 130 new scholarships are awarded each year through a competitive application round.

The National Rural Health Alliance administers the RAMUS Scheme on behalf of the Department of Health.

FAQ:  I’m not yet studying medicine. Can I still apply for RAMUS?

Yes. If you have applied to study medicine in 2014, but don’t yet have a confirmed university place you can apply for RAMUS.  If your application is successful and you are offered a scholarship, you would then be required to verify that you are enrolled full-time in medicine in 2014.
