Hospice NZ is committed to growing leaders in hospice palliative care. Thanks to the ongoing support and generosity of our national partner BNI New Zealand, we are delighted to offer study scholarships for 2019.

Scholarship applicants must show the relevance of their chosen study to their particular role and ongoing professional development needs within hospice palliative care. They must be either employed by a member hospice or hold current individual membership of Hospice NZ.

The scholarships will cover tuition/ course fees up to $1,000 for postgraduate study provided by an accredited institution.

Applications meeting the criteria will be considered by the Hospice NZ education committee.

Applications for larger course fee costs will be judged on a case by case basis.

The national priority for the 2019 scholarships is to support the professional development of psychosocial and allied health teams employed by member hospices.
