Scholarships and connections: Indonesians, Papua New Guineans and Australians, 1960-2010

The research project Scholarships and Connections recorded over 100 life stories of students from Indonesia and Papua New Guinea who were sponsored for Australian-based tertiary study from the 1950s to 2010.  These interviews with alumni deepen our understanding of the scholarship programs and their objective of building mutually beneficial linkages between Australia and partner countries.
