Healthcare Scholarships and Funding

Tūruki provides scholarships and funding for those who reside or have connections to Hawke’s Bay through whakapapa.

It is important to note that you must be either working, volunteering or intend to work in the health sector and contribute to Māori Health improvement in Hawke’s Bay.

Our scholarships and funding focus on building the capability and capacity of our Māori health workforce in Hawke’s Bay through assistance for training and professional development.

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 importance of scholarships and funding in the Māori Workforce Action Plan.
