To be eligible for an SRSA grant you must:

  • Be a Fellow of a non-GP Australian specialist medical college OR be an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander trainee of one of these colleges
  • Live and work in a regional, rural or remote area (classified as Modified Monash Model 2-7)

Yes, although you will only be awarded a grant for one activity. If you are applying for multiple activities, it is a good idea to rank them in order of your preference.

Unfortunately, no. All CPD activities must be completed in Australia.

Yes. However, face-to-face or blended CPD activities may be prioritised over fully online courses. This is because of the extra networking and peer support opportunities they provide.

You can apply for all forms of CPD that align with college requirements and can be completed within the timeframe of a funding round (15 months). For example, clinical placements, mentoring, peer review, practical workshops, courses, conferences and meetings.

To increase your chances:

  • Make the benefits of the CPD activity to your learning goals and the community/ies you serve clear
  • Apply for more active learning, such as a clinical placement or peer review

Often applications exceed available grant funds. If you miss out, please re-apply during the next round.

Once you have completed your activity, we will ask you to send us your receipts and complete a short evaluation survey. Once this is done, we will reimburse you for your expenses into your nominated bank account.

Yes! This is very important as we can only reimburse you for expenses if you have a receipt or other proof of purchase.
