The Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience has a new $1 million Australian Government scholarship fund to boost education development opportunities for emergency management volunteers. The scholarships will be made available to Australian citizens or permanent residents who are volunteers in an emergency management agency for accredited emergency management or disaster resilience vocational or higher education studies. Those who live in a regional or rural area, female volunteers, and Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander volunteers, are highly encouraged to apply. These scholarships will equip emergency management volunteers to best prepare and respond to a range of disasters and build national resilience. For more information about the scholarships and the application process visit www.aidr.org.au. Round 2 applications commence on Monday 4th September.
