Healthcare Scholarships: for existing and new healthcare workers

Tūruki provides healthcare scholarships if you’re interested in working in the Hawke’s Bay DHB, or already do and want further training.

Our scholarships focus on increasing Māori participation in healthcare in our region and professional development for Māori healthcare workers.

Healthcare scholarships for professional development

If you need assistance with fees for further tertiary study, we provide two funding rounds per year that coincide with tertiary enrolment dates. These scholarships are for study towards improving Māori health, particularly in priority areas such as Maternal Child and Youth Health; Health of Older People; Long-term Conditions and Māori Health.

You can find out more about the scholarship applications in the Tūruki Strategy 2014-2019.
