Allied Health Professionals are increasingly completing postgraduate qualifications to upskill themselves, whether it is for work reasons or professional development. This can range from postgraduate certificates to doctoral studies. For those not funded by an employer it is useful to look around and consider funding opportunities to contribute to the payment of your studies.

In this webinar, director of education programmes and PhD student, Lelanie Brewer will offer hands-on advice on completing a grant application or preparing a funding proposal. It will cover key issues, such as where to look for funding opportunities, understanding the evaluation process, structuring the case for support, and use of language.
