“We hear of people who have gone on to make an enormous impact on the world and it started with the kindness of a stranger. This is your practical version of belief in us in both heart and action.”
Michelle White, Postgraduate Nursing Student.

As well as the four-year Bachelor of Midwifery, the University offers a wide range of postgraduate study opportunities in nursing. At any one time we have around 700 students enrolled in postgraduate nursing courses, many of them working part time in their chosen field as they continue to pursue their studies.

Education changes lives. Through your philanthropic gifts, we can invest in the students of today who will go on to become the health leaders of tomorrow.

By supporting nursing and midwifery scholarships you are supporting better health outcomes for people all across New Zealand.

“I’m studying midwifery because it feels like a calling. Receiving this scholarship has made the Bachelor of Midwifery programme accessible to me. It has relieved some of the financial burden that comes with studying, but it also makes me feel like someone believes in me, and that I can achieve, and that I can succeed in this course. So far the programme has been absolutely fantastic.

“Please donate! Midwifery isn’t just about mothers and babies – it’s about community, and family, and culture, so when you’re donating to a Bachelor of Midwifery scholarship, you really are donating to all of those things and not just an individual.”

Anahera Olsen, Bachelor of Midwifery Student.
