Health Association Nova Scotia – Scholarship Program

We are pleased to announce that Health Association Nova Scotia will once again be offering our Membership Scholarship Program. The program is available to permanent employees of our member organizations as well as their children. It offers four (4) scholarships valued at $2,500 each for students enrolled in programs which focus on our four core services (Group Benefits Solutions, Labour Relations and Compensation Analysis, Financial Services, and Clinical Engineering Services) and again this year Health Programs, such as Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy or Pharmacy.

The Health Association is a not-for-profit, non-government, member-based organization that has been serving Nova Scotia’s Health and Disability Support Program sectors for almost sixty years.  We are dedicated to providing exceptional human resource shared services, innovative clinical engineering solutions, policy support, and expertise our customers can count on.  The annual scholarship program was established three years ago to demonstrate our commitment to achieving service excellence in these core functions.

Funding for the scholarship program is made possible by the preferred partnership arrangement the Health Association Group Benefit Solutions Service has with Johnson Insurance. We are delighted that our partnership with Johnson Insurance is providing us with an opportunity to support the education of our members’ employees and their children. By offering scholarships, the Health Association not only offers financial support, we also wish to recognize and reward academic achievement and encourage students to pursue/maintain post-secondary studies.

As announced last year, two of the membership scholarships have been named in memory of two dedicated health system leaders, Garnet Burns and Arlene Morrison, who both passed away in 2016.  We are honoured to name these awards as a tribute to their memory and the extraordinary contributions they made to our health system.
