Applying for a Scholarship

How do I apply for a scholarship?

Applications must be made online at the Online Australia Awards Scholarships Information System (OASIS) website.

To apply you need to use Google Chrome, Safari or Firefox on a desktop computer not a mobile device when applying on OASIS.

Submit your application two weeks before the deadline to allow AAPNG to check if your application complies with the requirements. Avoid submitting on the last day. OASIS experiences peak usage in the days leading up to the closing date and applicants may experience delays.

For instructions on how to complete your online application, please refer to the Applicant Information Booklet, as well as the OASIS Intake 2021 Application User Guide.

Applications open on 1 February 2020 and will now close on 30 June 2020 (midnight PNG time).

Hard copy and emailed applications will not be accepted for Intake 2021.
