We’re looking for the next generation of great teachers to work in our rural and remote public schools and the Department of Education can kick-start your career with a teach.Rural scholarship.

Rural and remote scholarships are open

Future teachers can make a difference in our rural and remote communities by applying for a scholarship.

Rural and remote areas in NSW are wonderful places to live, work and build a great teaching career.

The Minister for Education, Rob Stokes, said in a video message: “NSW public schools are full of opportunities for great teachers – people who make a real difference to our state's future.”

The financial benefits of a teach.Rural scholarship include:

  • A permanent teaching position on the successful completion of studies
  • $7500 per year of full-time study
  • $500 [per week] while completing a rural practicum
  • An appointment allowance; and
  • The potential for up to $50,000 equivalent upfront course fee

Visit teach.NSW website for more information. Applications close 24 September for the scholarships for study starting in 2019.
