Four USC staff and students have been awarded travel scholarships by Garuda Indonesia Airline to pursue new teaching, research and study projects in Indonesia.
Three of the recipients are already in Indonesia and the fourth, languages expert Ann Robertson, leaves next month.
USC Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Hill and Garuda Indonesia Airline General Manager Queensland Aryo Wijoseno presented the scholarships at a recent ceremony at USC’s Innovation Centre Auditorium.
Professor Hill said the University had formed a partnership with the airline to strengthen relationships between Australia and Indonesia, which would have great benefits for USC staff and students as well as for Indonesian communities.
The scholarships program is expected to continue annually. The four recipients and their projects are:
