1. Background

Pasifika Medical Association Scholarships
In 2018 the Pasifika Medical Association (PMA) launched six scholarships to assist Pacific people into medical and health related careers. The scholarships have all been named after life members of the PMA who have given exemplary service to improving the health of Pacific people in New Zealand and/ or the region. The mentioned scholarships are awarded on a yearly basis as a one-off grant. Scholarship recipients can use this grant for tuition costs or study related costs and may also use some of the grant to contribute to the living costs of the recipient whilst they are studying.
