Interlake-Eastern RHA Awarding Tuition Bursaries to Health Care Students

The application deadline for Interlake-Eastern RHA’s Grow Your Own bursary is June 30. Designed to assist in the recruitment and retention of health care professionals, the bursary sees the RHA cover, to a maximum, $2,550 per academic year to full time students who are pursuing a career in a health care profession. Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited education program leading to a degree, diploma or certificate in a health care. In order to apply for bursary funding, the applicant must have completed two years of a program that is four or more years long. Applicants must be interested in working for Interlake-Eastern RHA after graduation as the provision of a bursary is conditional upon a return of service agreement with employment based in Interlake-Eastern RHA. Students may apply for the bursary a maximum of two times.

It’s a program that has benefitted both students and the RHA according to Brianna Demchuk, human resources manager for Interlake-Eastern RHA.

“We currently have 26 students fulfilling their return of service agreements with us. Of the four students who have recently completed their return of service, we are pleased that all four have chosen to remain working for us. We call this bursary Grow Your Own because it helps us identify and support students who are ultimately seeking to secure a position as a health care professional within our region,” Demchuk said.

Nursing students typically represent the majority of bursaries awarded but other health care professionals in training, such as pharmacists and physiotherapists, are encouraged to apply as well.

More information and an application form are available at under “Careers” and “Education Funding”.
