The Defence Cooperation Scholarship Program provides scholarships to defence personnel from countries in the Asia-Pacific region to undertake postgraduate studies in Australia. This year Scope Global supported more than 150 personnel, including scholarship recipients on award in Australia and candidates applying for a scholarship to commence in 2019.
Scope Global has managed this program on behalf of the Australian Department of Defence since 2009, and this year our scope of services expanded again. We now manage the admissions process for international candidates for the Australian Defence Force Academy, and for international officers undertaking postgraduate study concurrently with secondments at the Defence International Training Centre and the Peacekeeping Operations Training Centre.
Our team prioritises delivering timely and customised support to all personnel involved in the program. Throughout the year they played an active role in recipients’ inductions to Australia and conducted regular interviews with all students.
