Sponsor a Student
Support the next generation of Rural Generalists.
If you're a medical student, and a member of either ACRRM and/or RDAA and you're interested in attending Rural Medicine Australia, we strongly encourage you to apply for Sponsor a Student.
The program is designed to bring more students to the conference - as the future of rural generalism, we want to see a large contingent of student guests! That’s where Sponsor a Student comes in – it helps cover the costs of attending the conference.
The Sponsorship covers full conference student registration, valued at $295. Students successful in receiving a sponsorship will need to cover their own:
- travel costs to and from the conference
- accommodation during the conference
- personal expenses, including meals not covered during the conference
- registration for conference social events.

It’s really enlightening to hear about some of the political landscape – the good and the bad. As a student, I think it helps to prepare us.Bron, Student
RMA is progressive, inclusive, and welcome. There is no sense of hierarchy, every student is included and made to feel a part of the ‘rural mob’. It’s the best conference you will attend as a medical studentJessica, Student
RMA is one of the best conferences I have attended! I’ve learnt many insightful anecdotes not only from listening, but actually speaking and interacting with keynote speaks and other attendees.Justine, Student
