Paul Goldsmith, Minister for tertiary education, skills and employment, today announced the recipients of the latest funding round of the Prime Minister’s Scholarships for Asia (PMSA).
The awards fund a variety of individuals and groups to travel to universities and institutes of technology to engage in student exchanges, undergraduate or postgraduate research or study, and internships.
“Building new connections and networks, developing a deeper understanding of language and culture, and gaining an international perspective in their area of expertise are just some of the benefits for these students," said Mr Goldsmith.
Study programmes for the 59 individual students include a one-semester exchange at National University of Singapore, an internship at the Hong Kong office of a global law firm, a Master of International Studies at Seoul National University in Korea, and two years’ postdoctoral research at the Institute of Robotics, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China.
A further 143 students were awarded a scholarship as part of 12 group applications.
