South Shore Health maintains a Bursary Program offering bursaries of up to $5,000 to students pursuing health-related careers. High school, college and university students from Lunenburg and Queens Counties are eligible to apply. Successful bursary recipients will be required to enter into a Return-of-Service Agreement, post-graduation, with South Shore Health. The successful recipient will agree to be employed by South Shore Health for no fewer than the same number of years that the recipient was provided support by the Bursary Program. Successful recipients, who are not willing to accept full-time employment with South Shore Health in the field of their training, will be required to reimburse the Bursary Program.

South Shore Health employees returning to an accredited learning institution for education that will result in a change in the employee’s profession are also eligible to apply for a bursary.

Restrictions may be applied to specific healthcare professions. For the upcoming year, South Shore Health has identified skill shortages in Nursing (RNs and LPNs) and Family Medicine.  The Steering Committee may also consider other applicants pursuing careers in Allied Health.
