Call for applicants: $5,000 Euan Crone Asian Awareness Scholarship

Published 28 Aug 2019

$5,000 Euan Crone Asian Awareness Scholarship applications now open to young members of the Australian Institute of International Affairs

Members of the Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) under the age of 35 interested in deepening their awareness of Asia have until 15 September to apply for the Euan Crone Asian Awareness Scholarship.

The Euan Crone Asian Awareness Scholarship was established in 2013 and provides grants of up to $5,000 to enable young Australian students or recent graduates, who are members of the AIIA, the opportunity to travel, work and or study in Asia.

“My time in Seoul was an incredible learning venture where I gained practical experience and insights that have supplemented my postgraduate degree in international development and given me a greater understanding of Korean culture and perspectives from the inside out, rather than from the West looking in,” said 2015 scholarship recipient Luisa Cools (AIIA QLD).

Applicants should have a genuine interest in Asia along with a commitment to the deepening of knowledge and understanding of Asia in the Australian community. Previous exposure to an Asian country in a specific field or sector combined with knowledge of the local language are also strong attributes amongst candidates.

The Euan Crone Asian Awareness Scholarship may be used for:

(a) Carrying out self-study and research

(b) Formal, specialised short-term study at recognised educational institutions

(c) Cost of food, accommodation and travel expenses during the experience

(d) Short-term work or research attached to an in-country organisation


Applications are now open and will close 15 September 2019.


All scholarship applications should be submitted in writing accompanied by a completed online application form, a current CV, two references and a copy of the applicant’s most recent university transcript.
