Vanuatu Government Scholarships provide the key means for the Government to build the human resources the nation needs in order to achieve our development goals across our Society, Environment, and Economy pillars. As such all scholarships awarded must be directly linked to the Vanuatu Government Scholarship Priority Framework.
Please make sure you have carefully read the Scholarship Priority Framework.
Aviation-related Training in 2018
The Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) is currently in the process of working with the Civil Aviation Authority Vanuatu (CAAV) and other aviation-related sector partners to develop a long term sustainable strategy to meet aviation sector workforce needs in Vanuatu. This strategy will be completed in 2018 for implementation in 2019. For this reason, no applications for pilot or aircraft engineering training will be taken in this application round.
Vanuatu Government Scholarships provide funding to study at regional institutions. This excludes New Zealand and Australia. Should you wish to study in New Zealand or Australia, you must apply directly to NZAID and Australia Awards. It should be noted that NZAID and Australia Awards also provide scholarships to regional institutions.
