Applications open for Rural Women NZ & Access Homehealth scholarship

Health professionals with an interest in the rural sector are invited to apply for this year’s the Rural Women NZ & Access Homehealth scholarship, with a closing date of 1 July.

“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.

“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 Otago paramedic, Annabel Taylor, who has furthered her studies with a postgraduate diploma in specialty care.

Full information and application forms can be found at www.ruralwomen.org.nz (bursaries tab) or www.access.org.nz.
