Do you know a student pursuing education in a health-care profession? If so, this program might help them reach their goals.

Student Education Funding is an Interlake-Eastern RHA program offered through human resources, and the application period is open until June 30.

With a focus on recruitment and retention, Interlake-Eastern RHA developed a funding program for students enrolled in educational programs for health-care professions. The fund provides a pre-determined monetary contribution towards tuition and books to full-time or part-time students per year.

Examples of applicable occupations include nurses, health-care aides, health information management professionals, pharmacists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and social workers.

“This program is extremely beneficial to our region to help recruit and retain qualified individuals in health care,” said Kerri Simcoe, human resources generalist. “With education costs rising, every little bit helps. This is a win-win for the individual pursuing their education and for the IERHA.”

The funds, which are conditional upon a return-of-service agreement, aim to assist full-time or part-time IERHA employees, self-identifying Indigenous students and Interlake-Eastern residents. The recipient must apply for posted vacant positions and start employment with IERHA within three months of graduation.

Students can apply for funding a maximum of two times. They can receive up to $2,500 for a four-year program, up to $1,500 for a two-year program, and up to $500 for programs that are one year or less.

To apply, applicants need to complete a funding application form and submit it to Human Resources as well as a cover letter, resumé, confirmation of registration or transcripts and two reference letters.

For more information, contact Human Resources at hr@ierha.ca or Kerri Simcoe, human resources generalist at ksimcoe@ierha.ca or 204-485-5436. More information is also available online at For Students – Interlake-Eastern RHA (ierha.ca)
