The initiative will see students work with representatives of local communities to develop and implement a project relevant to the health needs of those communities or link in with existing projects. At the end of the students' placement they will make a presentation to members of the local community and one project will win the Bendigo Bank Community Award.

Linking with passionate community representatives through the Bendigo Bank will make certain the projects filled a genuine need and give students real links into the people who live in the regions.
