The Oceania Comparative and International Education Society (OCIES) has as part of its mandate the goal of furthering and promoting comparative and international education scholarship within the region. A core component of this is supporting new and emerging scholars to share and disseminate their work. This year we will have up to five Emerging Scholar Awards for postgraduate students (research masters or PhD)  and up to five Excellence in Research Awards for experienced scholars. Please note that the deadline for the scholarship awards has been extended from 15th October to 25th October.
