DONATE TO THE AMA’S INDIGENOUS MEDICAL SCHOLARSHIP TODAY!

The AMA Indigenous Medical Scholarship supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to study medicine and achieve their dream of becoming doctors.

You can now donate towards the Indigenous Medical Scholarship, and support an Indigenous medical student throughout their medical degree.

For less than the cost of one coffee, you can help realise an Indigenous medical student’s educational goals. 


2017 AMA Indigenous Medical Scholarship winner, James Chapman

Winner of 2017 Indigenous Medical Scholarship, James Chapman said "...I take comfort in knowing that I can contribute and make a difference to my fellow Indigenous people's lives; prolonging and preserving a culture that holds a very important place, both to myself and to many others."

The AMA currently offers one Scholarship each year to an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander student who is studying medicine at an Australian University. We would like to increase the number of Scholarships each year, so we can support more Indigenous medical students to become doctors.

The value of the Scholarship is $10,000 per annum, for the full duration of a medical degree.
