The Pacific Leadership Programme is calling for applicants from around the Pacific for the prestigious Greg Urwin Award.
This award, named after the former Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum, aims to give aspiring leaders in the region the opportunity to take up work place attachments with regional or Australian organisations to hone their skills.
The award is worth more than 25 thousand US dollars and the organisers say preference will be given to people in the health sector who wish to pursue a project related to cancer awareness, treatment and/or research relevant to the Pacific situation.
