Scholarships 

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.  

If you are interested in applying for a Pacific Health Fund Scholarship download an application form here, or for more information contact Dr Guy Sansom on (03) 9288 4388 or email stvpacifichealth@svhm.org.au. Applications close on 31 October every year.

Over the past three years a number of students have taken up Andrew Dent scholarships and travelled to work and study in pacific nations. Their accounts make for interesting reading and are included below.
