THIRTY three lucky individuals were this week awarded Australian Government scholarships at the Australian High Commission in Suva.

Speaking to the recipients was bilateral counsellor for Fiji and Tuvalu, Joanne Choe, who said it was important they brought back the skills they learnt from their studies and applied them here in Fiji.

"Not only do we have great confidence in you as individuals and as students, we hope you'll do really well in your chosen fields and do very well academically and gain a lot and be able to come back and use that in your future endeavours," Ms Choe told the recipients on Wednesday morning.

"But we do want you to take this on as a holistic experience because it's not just about study, you're going to meet a range of really interesting people — not only from Australia but all around that world."
