Futures that Work

Pacific mental health and addiction scholarships are now closed.

The purpose of the Futures that Work scholarships and support programme is to grow the size and skills of the Pasifika Mental Health and Addiction workforce.

Applications have now closed for 2018.

What is the Futures that Work programme?

With higher rates of mental illness and substance abuse than the general population, and an under-represented mental health and addiction workforce, Le Va’s Futures that Work programme focuses on growing the capacity and capability of the Pacific workforce to support a culturally relevant workforce to meet demand.

Growing the size and skills of the Pacific workforce takes more than just financial support, it's also about providing appropriate mentoring, coaching, cultural and pastoral care, as well as support identifying employment and career pathways. Futures that work is a three-step process.

  1. Get your fees paid – a contribution to course fees is paid to your tertiary provider.
  2. Get your study sorted – Le Va’s Teuila coaching model guides us in identifying what support you may need.
  3. Get your dream job - we'll help with planning your career in mental health or addiction.
