Are you or do you know of someone who wants to be a change-maker in health in the Midlands region?

Then a funded place on the University of Waikato MBA programme could be what they need. The Braemar Charitable Trust is funding an MBA Bursary at the University of Waikato.

The bursary aims to support an MBA candidate in 2023 and 2024 who is in a role that has direct impact on the health and wellbeing in the community and is, or aspires to be a transformational/system change leader in the Not-For-Profit community health sector.  

Potential candidates who meet the eligibility criteria can submit an expression of interest which will be considered by the Braemar Charitable Trust Board of Trustees. The value of the bursary will be $40,000 split across the candidate’s enrolment in the MBA Programme, part-time for 2.5 years from March 2023.

Expressions of interest are welcome from candidates who meet the following eligibility criteria:

To be eligible for consideration for a nomination, applicants must:
