Hollomby Foundation Scholarships in Nursing
The Hollomby Foundation remains committed to supporting students to enter Nursing studies at the GUC. As arrangements with GUC and Curtin University for the support of the Bachelor of Science (Nursing) have recently changed, there will not be an intake of nursing students in 2013. Therefore no specific Hollomby Foundation Nursing Scholarships will be made available in 2013.
