RAPHS Medical and Nursing Undergraduate Scholarship
Closing date: to be announced
The RAPHS Scholarship was established in 2008 with funds donated by Rotorua Area Primary Health Services Ltd to the Health Rotorua Charitable Trust.
Rotorua Area Primary Health Services (RAPHS) is an independent health management organisation committed to health care excellence in the Rotorua area. Established in 1993 by a group of forward-thinking general practices, RAPHS today manages a range of multi-disciplinary clinical programmes and support services and provides business, administrative and technology support for primary healthcare providers in Rotorua.
The RAPHS Scholarship will assist in funding two Rotorua residents in their first year of medical or nursing training, with the intent of supporting the training and retention of local medical practitioners.
Each year there is:
1. one scholarship for a student who has been accepted into the Nursing programme and at the time of application will be due to commence their first year of nursing studies, and
2. one scholarship for a student who has successfully completed their first year of study at The University of Auckland or University of Otago and has been admitted to the first professional year of the medical degree programme.
- be a New Zealand citizen or a New Zealand permanent resident
- have attended secondary school in the Rotorua District
- be normally resident in the Rotorua District (excluding out-of-district residence during University term)
A student who has held the scholarship may apply again for up to a further two years, provided that he or she continues to make satisfactory progress in all respects.
Academic ability and commitment to a career in general practice will be the primary criteria by which recipients are selected, as well as consideration of financial barriers to attending medical school.
Each award has a value of up to $2000 per annum.
The scholarship may be held for one year only. The selection panel may, in exceptional circumstances, consider an extension of the award to more than one year provided that the scholar makes a further application and continues to made satisfactory progress in all respects. If part-time, this can be paid on a pro-rata basis to a maximum value of $2,000, subject to approval.
Each scholarship must be taken up in the year in which it is awarded.
The scholarship may be held concurrently with other awards, subject to approval from the selection panel.
Every holder of the scholarship must submit a report on his or her year’s activities to the Health Rotorua Charitable Trust by 1 December of the year of tenure.
The Health Rotorua Charitable Trust and Rotorua Area Primary Health Services Ltd reserve the right to use the names, photographs and details of successful applicants for the purposes of advertising and publicity. The scholarship holders must agree to be reasonably available to participate in interviews and promotional activities if requested by RAPHS or the Trust.
