The primary aim of the Scheme is to enhance research capacity in ACIAR’s partner country institutions. Whilst individual awardees will benefit from the Scheme, it is important to emphasise that partner country institutions are the key targets.
ACIAR’s research priorities are determined through regular consultations with partner countries. Alignment of postgraduate training with research will ensure that the training needs of partner countries are met. Thus, postgraduate studies undertaken by each awardee are usually based on the research work being carried out under the collaborative research project in whch the awardee is engaged prior to taking up the award. Although applications are welcome from participants in both bilateral and multilateral projects, applicants must be working with ACIAR projects in a current partner developing country and applicants must be citizens of the country in which they are working.
After a successful initial year, ACIAR will continue to use the online application process. For registration please visit the Online Australia Scholarship Information System (OASIS) http://oasis.dfat.gov.au to logon, create and complete an application.
Please note that it is ACIAR’s preference that applicants apply online. However if applicants are unable to submit online an updated application form will be made available on request to firstname.lastname@example.org
