“To anyone thinking of applying for this scholarship just do it! You'll meet amazing life-long friends and have great support everywhere you turn." These words of encouragement come from last year’s recipient of the Pacific Oral Health Scholarship, Otessa Tuisila, who is giving her first year’s study at the University of Otago the thumbs up.

The application form can be downloaded below.

The District Health Board and Ministry of Health have two Pacific Oral Health Scholarships for students of Pacific origin undertaking a Bachelor of Oral Health, Dental Therapy, with the University of Otago. They are a great way of funding your study and include mentoring and career support.

It is expected that on successful completion of study, recipients as new graduates will work with one of the Wairarapa, Hutt Valley or Capital & Coast DHB’s Community Oral Health services for two years*.

Applications close 23 September 2016. See below for the scholarship guidelines and application form or ring Fuaao Stowers, Pacific Health Unit, Hutt Valley DHB 04-570 9247 for further information.
