GLOBAL law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has announced its scholarship program to support the pursuit of quality in legal studies in Papua New Guinea.
This followed the opening of its office in Port Moresby in last November as part of an expanded Asia-Pacific network.
The scholarship is to support the PNG law students who have shown commitment to their undergraduate studies.
The 2017 scholarship has been designed to provide the recipient with ongoing support throughout their final year of undergraduate legal studies program by providing up to K10,000 in payments and reimbursements for major costs related to their study and to reward high achievement in their final year studies.
In addition to the core scholarship, at the judging committee’s discretion, the firm may also select up to two additional applicants to receive a highly commended award of K1000 each.
The scholarship reflects Norton Rose Fulbright’s commitment to giving back to the PNG community and investing in a strong and vibrant local legal profession. Community engagement was a strong motivation for the opening of the Port Moresby office last year.
Norton Rose Fulbright has a long history working in PNG, largely from its Australian offices, on cross-border transactions and projects. The firm has done significant work for the PNG Government and private enterprises over many years. Recently it advised on several high-profile energy, mining, infrastructure and telecommunications deals, engaged in dispute resolution, and also assisted in the development of key legislation.
To be eligible for the scholarship, an applicant must be a citizen of PNG, currently doing an undergraduate degree program with a major in law or have completed the first three years of full time study.....check out other scholarships on : Scholarships & Awards
