The Andrew Dent Scholarship is offered each year to health sector students who need support to undertake volunteer work, electives or study trips that aid people in the Pacific Region. The scholarship is open to individual students in the health sector to help support volunteer work, student electives and study trips within the Pacific Islands region. It is hoped that an experience of working and living in the Pacific as a student will lead to a life-long professional and personal link with the region which will benefit both the individual student and the Pacific Islanders they encounter.
