A scholarship program is offered by the NRBHSS for beneficiaries of the JBNQA who are currently pursuing post-secondary studies in the health and social services sector outside of Nunavik.
This monetary incentive will be available for their entire study period until graduation and/or hiring in the health and social services network. However, applicants will need to reapply each academic year. Being accepted one year is not a guarantee of being accepted in subsequent years.
10 scholarships (fulltime or part-time) are awarded yearly.
