Australia Awards Pacific Scholarships

Australia Awards In-PNG Scholarships aim to provide training in priority areas identified by the Australian and PNG Governments that are delivered through selected partner institutions in Papua New Guinea.

We recently undertook a review of all aspects of the scholarship program and are currently implementing several recommended changes to how the scholarships are targeted, selected and managed. These changes will be in place in time for the selection for study in 2019. Applications for study in 2019 will open mid-2018.

In 2018, scholarships will be offered for studies in midwifery, nursing, and primary and elementary school teacher training at selected partner institutions in Papua New Guinea. Selections are currently underway for study in 2018. Successful scholarship candidates will be notified early this year.
