There are many scholarship opportunities for young Maori and Pacific considering a career in health. There are some important things to note when applying for scholarships:
- Get to know what’s available and what the deadlines are for applications.
- Make sure you have all the documentation that you need copied and or scanned in preparation for any scholarship applications. Eg school prizes, latest NCEA or tertiary results, community service awards, referees, references from employers in paid and/or voluntary work, letters of support from kaumatua and/or pastors and ministers and whakapapa.
- Ensure you have plenty of time to fully and accurately complete your scholarship application. This might also include ensuring that you have a support person or mentor to review your application before you submit it. Many secondary and tertiary students tell us that having someone sit with them and complete the application makes a world of difference.
