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.
For enquiries about the scholarship program please contact Knowledge Exchange Division on 9188 9500
