REACH Scholarship

R.E.A.C.H (REACH): Realising Educational Aspirations for Careers in Health, is a scholarship for Year 13 Māori secondary students interested in a career in health.

The REACH Otago Scholarship (Realising Educational Aspirations for Careers in Health) provides the opportunity for twenty Year 13 Māori students to spend three nights and days on the University of Otago's Dunedin campus. Students from across New Zealand experience university life first-hand: living in, and visiting, residential colleges; attending lectures; meeting current Otago students; and learning about the various degree and study options Otago offers, particularly in health.

The REACH Scholarship provides a fully funded opportunity for Year 13 Māori students to spend three nights and two full days on the Otago University campus exploring health science degree options. Flights, transfers, food and accommodation in a University of Otago Residential College are included.

REACH will help you gain an understanding of ‘life’ on campus and learn about health science study and degree/career options at the University of Otago. You will participate in hands-on learning including lectures, labs and ‘tutes’,visit several of the University of Otago’s Residential Colleges and meet key Māori contacts on campus.
