Health professionals with an interest in the rural sector are being invited to apply for the Rural Women NZ & Access Homehealth 2012 scholarship.
“We will be awarding the $3000 Rural Women NZ & Access Homehealth 2012 scholarship to a health professional to help further his or her studies,” says Rural Women New Zealand National President, Liz Evans.
“Given our rural focus, we are particularly keen to support someone who has an interest in providing health or disability services in rural communities.”
Preference will be given to applicants who are studying at post-graduate level.
Last year the scholarship went to an intensive care paramedic and emergency helicopter crew member from Gisborne, to assist her towards becoming a Nurse Practitioner.
Applications close 1 July.
