Australia Awards Scholarships are prestigious international awards offered by the Australian Government to the next generation of global leaders for development.

Applicants are assessed on their professional and personal qualities, academic competence and, most importantly, their potential to impact on development challenges in Papua New Guinea.

Applications are strongly encouraged from women, people with disability and those from the provinces.
