Australia Awards Papua New Guinea Fellowship

12 May 2016

In mid-2015, UQ International Development and School of Political Science and International Studies facilitated a Graduate Certificate in Governance and Public Policy for 20 female public servants from Papua New Guinea (PNG).

The women were nominated for the program due to their potential as future leaders within the PNG Public Service. They spent an introductory week in Port Moresby, followed by five and a half weeks of intensive study at UQ with a further four months of remote and face-to-face workplace mentoring in PNG.

The program provided participants with the knowledge, skills and networks to design and implement improvements in the workplace and an advanced theoretical and practical understanding of 21st century governance.
