The Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand is the professional body for cardiologists and those working in the area of cardiology including researchers, scientists, cardiovascular nurses, allied health professionals and other healthcare workers.
The organisation offers a variety of scholarships and fellowships with different eligibility criteria which are available to be viewed on their website:
One of those scholarships is the CSANZ Research Scholarship which is intended to support members of the CSANZ to pursue a career in cardiovascular research. This scholarship is only available to applicants who are enrolled as full time students (e.g. for PhD or MD) and whose research is to be conducted in Australia or New Zealand.
Another scholarship available through the CSANZ is the CSANZ Indigenous Researcher/Scientist Scholarship. The purpose of the scholarship is to enable scholars to undertake a clinical research project directed towards improving the cardiovascular health of Indigenous populations of Australia and/or New Zealand. The Scholarship is open to residents of Australia and New Zealand who are of Indigenous background (Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, Maori or Pacific Islander).
