The Australia Awards Fellowships aim to develop leadership, address priority regional development issues, and build partnerships and linkages between Australian organisations and partner organisations in developing countries, including countries in Papua New Guinea. The goal of the Australia Awards Fellowships program is to develop appropriately trained current and aspiring leaders in priority areas, who, in the short- to medium-term, will be in a position to advance key regional policy objectives and increase institutional capacity of partner countries. The Fellowships are designed to complement individual bilateral country programs by offering flexible fellowship placements which address current and emerging needs at the country, sub-regional and regional levels.

For Fellowships managed by the Australia Awards – PNG office in Port Moresby, Papua New Guineans are eligible to apply for Australia Awards Fellowships – Papua New Guinea (Fellowships). 

  • The awards are aligned to public service training needs identified as high priority by the Papua New Guinea Government.
