The Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra is offering scholarships for 100 undergraduate, masters and doctoral students to attend Asia Pacific Week from 10-14 July 2011.

This year’s ANU Asia Pacific Week will bring together leading regional experts and 100 of the world’s top students for a series of academic and networking events focused on the Asia Pacific region. The week in Canberra will incorporate the China Update, a Q&A style forum on the future of the Asia Pacific, thematic and sub-regional panel discussions, and a flagship session on the transformation of political and economic power in Asia.

The opening address on 11 July will be delivered by the Hon. Kevin Rudd MP, Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs.

Applications for student participants close on 21 April 2011.

Scholarships will be awarded to selected students and substantial travel bursaries may also be offered based on the strength of individual applications. Accommodation and food will be provided for the duration of the conference.

Further details on this opportunity can be found at the ANU Asia Pacific Week website.

It would be tremendous if eligible New Mandala readers and contributors made applications to join us in Canberra for this event. We would be very excited to welcome you to our home town.

Please feel free to distribute this announcement to anybody else you think might be interested.
