Each year the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific (CAP) may offer up to two Garrurru Postgraduate Indigenous Scholarships.
The scholarships are to address the underrepresentation of Indigenous Australians enrolled in programs and courses offered by CAP through the provision of a stipend to cover tuition fees and pastoral support to award recipients.
Funding for this award has been provided by the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific and offered to Indigenous Australian postgraduate coursework students in the spirit of the College's ongoing commitment to practical reconciliation.
CAP offers a diverse range of postgraduate studies in the areas of:
• Anthropology and Development
• Archaeological Science
• Asia Pacific Studies
