CCongratulations to the 55 Fijians who received Australia Awards scholarships to study in Australia next year.
In preparation for their departure, Australian Government representatives joined the awardees in Fiji this week to provide a pre-departure briefing with essential information that awardees need upon arrival in Australia, including advice about living and studying abroad, as well as to discuss their obligations as Australia Awards recipients.
Australia’s Deputy High Commissioner to Fiji, Amy Crago, said Australia is committed to supporting Fiji’s efforts to promote prosperity, reduce poverty and enhance political stability.
“We work closely with the Government of Fiji to determine the country’s priorities for development. The awards application process was open and competitive, providing equal opportunity to all eligible citizens in Fiji regardless of gender, ethnicity and disability. The 2019 Australia Awards intake is particularly exciting as we are delighted to involve 24 universities across all states and territories of Australia,” she said.
The Australia Awards are prestigious scholarships offered by the Australian Government to individuals in Fiji who strive to be leaders in their respective fields and make a difference in their home country.
The Awards provide an opportunity to study in renowned universities and become an emerging leader for development in Fiji with strong links to Australia.
The Awardees will be studying in prestigious universities around Australia, including Central Queensland University, Charles Darwin University, Charles Sturt University, Curtin University, Deakin University, Flinders University, Griffith University, Macquarie University, Monash University, Murdoch University, Queensland University of Technology, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, The Australian National University, The University of Adelaide, The University of Melbourne, The University of New South Wales (including Australian Defense Force Academy), The University of Newcastle, The University of Queensland, The University of Sydney, The University of Western Australia, University of Southern Queensland, University of Tasmania, University of Technology Sydney and Western Sydney University.
