AIIA Qld Asia-Pacific Scholarship

Applications for the 2018 scholarship program have closed. Details on the scholarship winner will be posted soon

The Australian Institute of International Affairs, Queensland, wishes to encourage and support Australian students at Queensland Universities to undertake study in the Asia-Pacific region. This new scholarship is established in line with the organisation’s mission of promoting understanding and interest in international affairs.

AIIA Queensland will provide this $2500 scholarship annually to support approved educational activity.

The scholarship was advertised on the AIIA website and through Queensland universities and applications closed on 31 July 2018. Selection processes will take place in September.

Selection Panel

A selection panel consisting of an academic representative from three Queensland based universities will review all applications and make a recommendation to the Council of AIIA Queensland during September. The successful applicants will be notified as soon as the Council has accepted the recommendations.

The successful applicant must provide evidence of the travel planned before the scholarship is paid, and will provide a report to the AIIA Queensland Council after the educational experience has been completed and the student has returned to Queensland. The successful students may also be invited to give a short talk on their experience at an AIIA meeting of members.

It is expected the funding for these scholarships will be made through donations to the AIIA Queensland.
