The Australian Government provides scholarships opportunities for Vanuatu students to study in Australia. The Scholarships are aligned with Australia’s development assistance in Vanuatu targeting human resource gaps in identified priority sectors. They aim to provide awardees with the skills and knowledge to drive change and influence economic and social development. Scholarships are open every year.
The Australian Government will assess applicants for their professional and personal qualities, academic competence and, most importantly, their potential to impact on development challenges in Vanuatu.
The priority areas of study for the Australian Government's Australia Awards in Vanuatu are:
Public Health Management
Public Sector/Financial Management/Economics
Engineering (Civil, Transport/Infrastructure, Aviation, Ports and Marine, Town Planning)
Veterinary (including bio-security)
