Vincent Pallotti Scholarship/Grant for Lay Ministry

The Union of Catholic Apostolate (UAC) was founded by St. Vincent Pallotti in Rome in 1835. It endeavours to spread the concept of a Church in which all people are actively involved.

The UAC offers scholarships/grants to enable lay people to further their understanding and skills in leadership/ministry or a specialized activity which is consistent with UAC aims and objectives.

These grants are awarded to applicants who demonstrate enthusiasm and ability in a particular area of endeavour, e.g. youth ministry, pastoral care, community service, indigenous health and education.

From a pool of $5000, funds are allocated towards the cost of study courses, specialist programs and conferences. There are two rounds each year for which applications close on 30th April and 31st October.

An application form for the scholarship/grant can be downloaded from the Pallottine website, or from
