Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences


Opportunities for support

Our ability to recruit, retain and grow the very best students and staff holds the key to allow both the faculty and University to deliver on its mission of improving the health of New Zealanders through excellence in teaching, research and service. Partnerships with friends and supporters significantly enhance our ability to meet this challenge.

Undergraduate and honours student scholarships


The honours programme and, in particular, the Bachelor of Science (Biomed) programme, helps us to identify the best candidates for postgraduate studies and research. By establishing appropriate student scholarships, we believe we can recruit and retain the best of these talented students.

Postgraduate scholarships


We face increasing difficulty recruiting the next generation of clinicians and research scientists. Financial contributions towards these scholarships enable us to attract high-achieving students, many of whom go on to build very successful careers in the faculty.

Repatriation or emerging researchers fellowships


The importance of high calibre leadership for the faculty and University through our ability to recruit leading academics to professorial roles is self-evident. To ensure that we are able to meet the challenges facing healthcare in New Zealand, Australasia and beyond, we need help in ensuring we can provide the support required for our professors to build academic teams of the highest calibre. Philanthropic support is a key component to this aspect of our vision.
