Apply for a Grant 

The St Vincent’s Pacific Health Fund was formally established in 2008 through the inspiration and generous legacy of Andrew Dent. The aims of the Fund are to promote and enable educational opportunities for health workers in the Pacific region, to assist in building capacity of health services and personnel through the provision of financial grants and to promote and establish links between St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne and health workers and institutions in the Pacific region, especially with remote locations. The Fund is managed by volunteers who have experience and interest in PNG and the Pacific Islands, is administered by the St. Vincent’s Hospital Foundation and is financed by donations.


The Fund is keen to receive applications for grants to provide support in these areas within or near the Pacific region. Grants may be awarded to individuals, groups or organisations whose proposal fulfils the aims of the Fund.


Grant applications should include the aims, benefits and expected outcomes of the proposal, how the project will be actually carried out, as well as a budget detailing the proposed expenditure. Applications for the Grant can be made directly to the Fund based on the criteria outlined in the application form. Successful applicants will be required to provide the Fund with a written report after completing their project. The report will include a description of activities and project outcomes.
