Laine Marsh – Year 5 MAPAS MBChB student

“Returning to study medicine was a big decision for my whanau, particularly as it meant moving to a single income which had a significant financial impact. Receiving these scholarships went a long way towards relieving some of the financial strain on me and my whānau.I would just advise applying early to ensure you've given yourself time to get appropriate documents and references. You should also apply for everything, you can only try and you may just be successful!”

Laine is the recipient of a Henry Rongomau Bennett Scholarship for Māori Leadership in Health (2011-2015)
