Applications have now closed for the Access NZ and Rural Women NZ scholarship. Watch this space for an update on the recipient for the 2015 scholarship.
“This $3000 scholarship will be awarded to a health professional to help further his or her studies,” says Rural Women New Zealand National President, Wendy McGowan.
We encourage health professionals, especially those studying at a post-graduate level, to apply before the closing date of 1 July.
“Given our rural focus, we are keen to support someone who has an interest in providing health or disability services in rural communities.”
In 2014 the scholarship was awarded to Bay of Plenty nurse Ellen Walker (pictured above). Ellen is studying to become a rural health nurse practitioner, and used the $3000 scholarship to help fund her post-graduate diploma studies at the University of Auckland.
