News 28 Jun 2018

Congratulations to all recipients of the NZ MFAT Scholarships who completed their studies at AUT University.

AUT’s Scholarships Office hosted a special ceremony to celebrate all international students who were recipients of either the NZ Development Scholarship, NZ ASEAN Scholarship, NZ Pacific Scholarship or Commonwealth Scholarship.

We particularly want to acknowledge Merilyn Jime (pictured right with PCF's Suzanne Suisuiki), who was a PCF Summer intern in 2016-17. A former nursing tutor, Merilyn completed her Bachelor of Health Science (majoring in Health Promotion) where the knowledge gained will benefit her people back in Papua New Guinea. Merilyn thanked PCF which provided her with work experience at Waitemata District Health Board.

Congratulations Merilyn on your achievement. PCF wishes you all the best with your endeavours. We’re confident you will serve your community well.
