NAFEA believes in the transformative nature a positive WIL experience can have on a student’s future, however, undertaking WIL represents a series of challenges for students and is associated with heightened stress due to increased financial, carer and life stressors. NAFEA is committed to assisting to make WIL accessible to all students through direct student support and support for our members working in this important space. As a response to our commitment in this space, in mid-2017 NAFEA introduced scholarships for students to undertake placement in regional/rural and remote settings.
In the two years since commencing the program NAFEA has awarded over $85,000 in scholarship money to over 60 students undertaking placements in rural and remote Australia.
We are looking for organisations to partner with NAFEA to offer financial support for students to undertake placement in regional/rural and remote locations.
