This report is based on interviews with eight alumni and key stakeholders to examine the long-term outcomes of Australian Government scholarship alumni from Papua New Guinea during the period of 1996-2005. Alumni in this Case Study undertook Australian Development Scholarships (now known as the Australia Awards) in information technology and related fields in engineering. This research was conducted by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s (DFAT) Australia Awards Global Tracer Facility (the Facility). The overall aim of the Australia Awards is to help ‘partner countries progress their development goals and have positive relationships with Australia that advance mutual interests’.
