Priority Framework

Priority Framework

The National Sustainable Development Plan 2016-2030 (Vanuatu 2030 The Peoples Plan) is Vanuatu’s highest level policy framework. Founded on our culture, traditional knowledge and Christian principles, our people and place are at the heart of our development aspirations. Three pillars: Society; Environment; Economy; with cultural heritage as the foundation for all, form pathways towards improved wellbeing and greater prosperity for us all. These pillars form the basis of the Vanuatu Government Scholarship Priority Framework 2019.


All scholarship awardees must ensure their program of study is aligned with one or more of the stated priorities.


Not all priorities in this Framework will be funded by the Vanuatu Government. Some of the priorities can only be undertaken at institutions outside of the region. As such, the Vanuatu Government Scholarship Priority Framework 2019 is also intended to guide the scholarship allocation of donor partners, bilateral and foreign scholarships.
