Ms Etivina Lovo, Telei’ai Dr Lalotoa Mulitalo and Mr Vincent Lal were the recipients of the 2017 Greg Urwin Awards.

About the Awards
The GUAs are a joint initiative of the Australian Government-funded Pacific Leadership Program (PLP) and the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS). The Awards were established in 2008 to honour the memory and legacy of the former Secretary General of PIFS, the late Mr. Greg Urwin.

There are three grants valued at AUD$25,000 each for this round of the awards. They will be given to outstanding Pacific Island professionals, researchers and emerging leaders to undertake a short (up to 3 months)  placement with a regional organisation or institution ( including in Australia and New Zealand) that has the potential to contribute to the positive development in the Pacific.
