ANU Asia Pacific Week 2019 in Australia
  • June 30 - July 5, 2019
  • Partially Funded
  • The Australian National University, Canberra, Australia.

The Australian National University’s Asia Pacific Week is an interdisciplinary conference aimed at high-achieving students and young professionals from around the world who have an interest in Asia and the Pacific. Now in its ninth year, the 2019 conference explores the theme of ‘New Horizons: Identities, Challenges and Opportunities.’

The Asia Pacific is a region that is constantly evolving and transforming. Under the theme of ‘New Horizons,’ Asia Pacific Week will take delegates on a journey looking into the future. What new ideas and movements have influenced the region? What challenges do countries face in the region individually and collectively? Is the region’s identity fragmenting or becoming stronger than ever before? And most importantly, what opportunities are there for constructive and positive change?

One of the applicants who will be applying through Youth Opportunities will get a Fully Funded Scholarship to attend the ANU Asia Pacific Week 2019 in Australia.
