The Victorian Government Hamer Scholarships Program is a language, cultural immersion and business engagement program that builds the Asia capabilities of Victorians and Victorian businesses.

The Hamer Scholarships Program provides $10,000 each for China or Indonesia, or $15,000 each for Japan or Korea.

Please note the Victorian Government will continue to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and will provide advice as appropriate to successful applicants

What's new?

The program has been revamped in 2020 with a sharpened business focus, supporting Victorian businesses to strengthen their Asia-engagement.

Hamer Scholarship recipients undertake 5-6 months of intensive language study in China, Japan, Korea or Indonesia while delivering an in-market business project that progresses the market development and/or export objectives of their employer in the chosen market.
