Applications are now open for the prestigious Australia for ASEAN scholarships.

The program aims to support students undertaking a Master by Research degree to develop the skills and knowledge to drive change and help build enduring people links between ASEAN and Australia.

Applicants are assessed on their professional and personal qualities, academic competence and their potential to impact on one of the four priority areas in the ASEAN Outlook for the Indo-Pacific: maritime, connectivity, economic development and the sustainable development goals 2030.

Successful candidates will participate in the ASEAN Emerging Leaders Program, which provides a range of learning, networking and professional development opportunities.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade announced the new scholarship program earlier this year. The University is a participating partner in the pilot program, accepting up to 10 students on fee-waived Masters by Research programs.

Applications close 30 April 2024.
