Workforce Development Scholarships – 2018 applications open

We are delighted to invite students who identify as Māori, Pacific or from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities, studying medicine, nursing or allied health to apply for the Pegasus Health Workforce Development Scholarships 2018.

Pegasus Health recognises that to improve the health status of all populations we serve, the Canterbury health system needs to be culturally responsive and provide services that are accessible and appropriate for the diversity of Canterbury people and communities.

Each year, Pegasus Health awards a number of Workforce Development Scholarships to students from Māori, Pacific and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds, working towards medicine, nursing or allied health degrees, with the aim of enhancing the cultural and linguistic richness of the health sector.

Since 2001 when these scholarships were first established, numerous aspiring recipients have been assisted, many of whom have gone on to outstanding careers in primary health care.

For more information, including the application form, please visit the Health Student Scholarships page.

Please note applications close 5pm Friday 20 April 2018.
