Mawson Lakes Fellowship Program
The broad purpose of the Mawson Lakes Fellowship Program (MFP) is to establish a commemorative project between South Australia and Japan, growing out of the collaboration on the Multi-Function Polis and focusing on urban innovation and innovative urban development practice.
The Mawson Lakes Fellowship Program is sponsored by the South Australian Government, three of the State's universities (Flinders University, the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia) and MACAJ, a consortium of leading Japanese companies. It provides three scholarships each year for South Australian postgraduate students interested in urban innovation and innovative urban planning and development practice to study in Japan for six months. In turn, three Japanese students are given the opportunity to study in Adelaide.
