Oz-Pacific Scholarships Need Better Targeting: Report

A new study says Australia's education and scholarship spending in the Pacific needs better targeting to help develop the region's leaders.

The Sydney-based Lowy Institute has mapped the region's leadership for the first time, focussing on East Timor and Samoa.

The study found a good education is fundamental in making a leader.

It recommends Australia's planned $US1.4 billion dollars of spending on scholarships, over the next 5 years, be better targeted.

The study's author, Fergus Hanson says in Samoa that could mean awarding more scholarships to people who hold traditional matai titles and to girls who have played a leadership role at school.

The study also recommends a greater focus on improving school education and a bigger role for the private sector and non-government organisations in mentoring leaders.
