Applications for National Suicide Prevention Conference bursaries now open

16 December 2016

We are delighted to announce that we are now welcoming Conference bursary applications. Visit the conference website and click on the Bursary Information button for more information and to apply.

The purpose of the National Suicide Prevention Conference Bursary fund is to enable individuals with a lived experience of suicide to attend the conference. Last year thanks to the generosity of sponsors and community fundraisers we were able to provide bursaries for over 20 individuals to attend the conference from a diverse range of backgrounds, communities and Australian States and Territories.

That said, the provision of bursaries is completely dependent on the Conference receiving bursary scholarship funding from state and territory governments and other sponsors. The Conference cannot guarantee the availability of bursary scholarships for the 2017 conference.

All bursary applications must be received by SPA no later than 7.00pm AEST 2 March 2017.
