[Yap State News Brief] 2014 Australian Regional Development Scholarship (ARDS)

 

Resource: Yap State News Brief/ Feb 8, 2013

The AusAID Office is announcing the intake of applications for the 2014 Australian Regional Development Scholarship (ARDS) which has currently opened and will close on March 25, 2013.

Annually, AusAID offers 20 Australian Regional Development Scholarships (ARDS). ARDS provides the opportunity for resident citizens from the North Pacific to undertake studies at post-secondary education institutions in the Pacific region (typically Fiji/Vanuatu) for study levels of Technical/Vocational, Undergraduate, and Postgraduate (up to Masters level, only).  The purpose of ARDS is to support training at the level and field of study that is expected to have the greatest developmental impact.

ARDS awards cover successful applicants’ tuition and institution fees, living expenses, basic overseas health coverage, tutorial assistance and economy class air travel back to your home country at the end of each year of study – given this really is an all-expenses paid scholarship, it is a wonderful opportunity that should be utilized.

Applications must hold a two year Associate Degree/Foundation Course at College by the end of 2013, OR be a mature age student (25 or more) who has a minimum of 5 years work experience.

Again, application period for the 2014 intake is currently open – closing on 25 March.
