Applications are now open for the Pacific Agriculture Scholarships and Support (PASS) Program which provides scholarships and support to postgraduate students in agriculture, forestry, and fisheries at The University of the South Pacific and Fiji National University. Since 2008, these ACIAR-supported research scholarships have achieved significant results, strengthening agricultural innovation systems in the Pacific.
ACIAR’s Pacific post-graduate scholarships are offered in the Pacific-to-Pacific Islanders. This enables scholars to research agricultural problems within the context that the solutions need to work, to build professional networks which will be relevant post-study, and remain close to family and culture.
The PASS Program aims to strengthen the Pacific agricultural innovation system through building on the strengths of Pacific universities and their regional partners. It sits within ACIAR’s Pacific Capacity Building Strategy and is part of ACIAR’s Pacific Step-up.
Applications close midnight (AEST) Sunday, 07 November 2021.
