Valued at $12,000, the scholarship supports undergraduates who are interested in Asia, and want to actively contribute to Australia’s success in Asia in their chosen field.
As a scholarship recipient you will be given the opportunity to spend up to two semesters studying at a leading Asian University. You will be encouraged to build your own adventure by having the freedom and flexibility to individualise your exchange and enhance your experience through a range of opportunities beyond the classroom. This may be a local internship, volunteering, work experience or intensive language course to enrich your Asian adventure.
The rise of Asia presents a unique opportunity for Australia. With this rapid growth in economic power and influence in our region, Australia is well placed to contribute to, and benefit from, the growth opportunities right on our doorstep. A greater understanding of Asian culture, markets and languages will be vital to build stronger business and cultural connections across the region.
Australia will need future leaders connected to those markets, and Asia-literacy will be critical to harness these opportunities in our region.
