The Scholarship Program will run over 11 months, with scholarships allocated each month from February to December.
WAOTA PD Scholarships
Each month members will be able to apply for:
- WAOTA course registration up to the value of $400 for an OT working in rural and remote.
- WAOTA course registration up to the value of $400 for an OT working in the Metropolitan area.
- WAOTA course registration up to the value of $200 for a current OT student.
The applications will be assessed and selected by the Committee of Management (COM) at our monthly meetings, which are held on the second Tuesday of each month. Successful applicants will then be notified via e-mail from Lorna, our Administrator. Please ensure your applications are submitted by COB Friday before the COM meeting and two months prior to your chosen PD event.
To comply with AHPRA CPD requirements, planning is needed with CPD for 2021 as you may be audited. We encourage you to renew your membership of our Association so that you can benefit from the excellent courses offered at significantly reduced prices for members.
In addition to this, there will be one scholarship per year up to the value of $2000. This is available to a successful applicant who would like to attend an international conference / course, or is planning for overseas volunteer or charitable work.
If you are undertaking research, please consider applying for our annual Research Grant of $2000, to help assist you financially with completing your research.
