West Coast DHB Studentship information

The West Coast District Health Board are very pleased to be able to offer the Sponsorship Awards in the form of Studentships to West Coast students who are studying at a NZ University or Polytechnic in a health related undergraduate career.

Note: We also have a WCDHB Scholarship section. To visit the WCDHB Scholarship programme page please click here.

West Coast DHB Studentship Programme

  • Four studentships will be offered to the value of $5,000 gross per student.  Note:  Income Tax will be deducted from this total.
  • Applicants will be required to complete an application form and submit the necessary documentation listed on the West Coast DHB Studentship Application form to be eligible for consideration. (Application form link below)
  • Recipients will be required to fulfil a work placement from November 2017 to mid- December 2017 inclusive.
  • The work placement will be divided into sections depending on the participant's health sector experience; this may include project work, specific interaction with departments and other related health professionals.
  • The successful studentship applicants will be required to present their studentship work to a group of West Coast DHB staff.
  • If applicants complete their degree in the year they apply it must be understood that attending work placement does not mean there is paid employment available after completing the studentship.
  • These studentships are offered to students who are studying at a NZ university or polytechnic in a health-related career.
  • If you are studying a non-clinical profession with a view to working in the health service please contact us first to discuss whether the West Coast DHB agrees that your career choice is health- related. (Contact details below)
