Amy Wright, of Balclutha, and Emily Wallace, of Gore, were presented with the scholarships, worth up to $5000 spread over three years, during the Clutha Health Inc 2010 annual meeting at the Balclutha Town and Country Club on Wednesday.
Miss Wright is studying towards a bachelor of nursing certificate in health, at the Southern Institute of Technology. The bachelor of nursing certificate is a pre-entry qualification to the bachelor of nursing degree. Miss Wright hopes to become a registered nurse.
Miss Wallace will study the first-year health sciences course at the University of Otago and hopes to pursue a career in pharmacy.
Clutha Health Inc board chairman Murray McLean said this was the third year the scholarship had been awarded, and the women were the fifth and sixth recipients.
"We hope that one day, they will come back and be part of the community," he said.
