Leap into a health-related career
West Coast District Health Board is very pleased to offer Sponsorship Awards in the form of Studentships to West Coast students who are studying at a recognised NZ university or polytechnic.
To select a diverse group of students who will work together on an approved project. This supports the WCDHB’s “grow your own” approach.
The students will undertake activities at the WCDHB, which benefit both the student’s learning experience and advance or assist any WCDHB project, event or activity.
There will be 6 studentships offered, with each student receiving $5000.00 as taxed wages.
The programme will run across the summer holiday period with 1-2 weeks prior to Christmas and 2-3 weeks in January/February.
The students will undertake activities at the WCDHB which benefit both the student’s learning experience and advance or assist any WCDHB projects, events or other activities.
To be eligible for consideration, applicants are required to complete a West Coast DHB Studentship Application form and submit it along with the necessary documentation listed in the form. (Application form is available via either link below)
Please choose either the computer typable (recommended if you can open with Microsoft Word) or the printer-friendly (PDF) version.
Please note that this year we have changed the sponsorship programme.
We are now only offering studentships up to the value of $5000 per successful applicant, and are now no longer offering the $500 scholarships.
So please feel free to apply, as the DHB wishes to support West Coasters in their studies.
