PNG Legal Scholarship

Norton Rose Fulbright has created a scholarship to support the pursuit of quality in legal studies in Papua New Guinea.

We created this scholarship to support PNG legal students who have already shown a commitment to their undergraduate studies, with a focus on those who may be interested in a career in commercial law.

The Norton Rose Fulbright PNG Legal Scholarship has been designed to provide the recipient with ongoing support throughout their final year of undergraduate legal studies 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, we may also select up to two additional applicants to receive a Highly Commended award of K1,000 each.
