At this time, GIA is not yet accepting applications for 2021 scholarships. With limited classroom capacity and some education locations closed, we are assessing how to effectively deliver programmes and courses. The status of on-campus learning is dependent on the government guidelines for each region and GIA is taking necessary precautions to ensure everyone’s health and safety.
