The HARC Scholarship program is available to employees of the HARC partner organisations: the Clinical Excellence Commission; the Agency for Clinical Innovation; the Bureau of Health Information; Cancer Institute NSW; and the Sax Institute.
It aims to build future leaders who:
- Are skilled in using research in policy and program development
- Work to close evidence practice gaps in NSW
- Are connected to national and international experts in health services research.
Recipients receive up to $10,000 to investigate an issue of interest with guidance from a local mentor. The project must be based on a challenge facing their agency and should include a literature review, a description of solutions implemented internationally and recommendations for future approaches.
The scholarship includes a visit to a national or international agency with expertise in the relevant field. Recipients seek the agency’s input to their project and develop collaborative links.
