Frohlich Scholarship to support the Permanent Court of Arbitration

This financial support is currently not available.


The objective of the award is to provide support to a current student, or graduate of the ANU College of Law, undertaking a 12 month Fellowship with the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in The Hague, Netherlands.
The award is intended to assist with the cost of living expenses while the recipient works as an Assistant Legal Counsel with the PCA's International Bureau. The recipient will assist with international arbitrations administered by the PCA, carry out legal research and drafting, and otherwise provide legal advice and services as directed by Legal Counsel within the PCA. The 12 month Fellowship will commence in February.
Due to the travel restrictions in place in Australia, the ANU recipient will need to complete the fellowship remotely, from Australia.

Field of study



The award is available each year to an ANU student or graduate who is:

  • a final year Bachelor of Laws(Hons) or Juris Doctor student (whether undertaken as a single or flexible double degree) at the ANU Law School; or

  • at the time of application enrolled in the LLM at the ANU Law School; or

  • A recent graduate of the LLB(Hons), JD or LLM from the ANU Law School. A 'recent' graduate is defined as one graduating within five years of the date of application.

Please note that applicants need to conform to the University's concurrent scholarship position as outlined in clause 16 of the ANU Scholarship (coursework) procedure. If you are holding a current ANU Academic or Sport scholarship, you can still apply for this opportunity. However, if you are selected for the program, you will need to rescind your current ANU Academic or Sport scholarship in order to accept the Permanent Court of Arbitration Scholarship. 


The value of the award is stated in your letter of offer.  The duration of the award is 12 months. The award is paid in quarterly instalments, from the beginning of the Fellowship period, unless otherwise stated in the letter of offer.
