Australia Awards Scholarships

Australia Awards Scholarships are long-term
awards administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

They aim to contribute to the
development needs of Australia’s partner countries in line with bilateral and
regional agreements.

They provide opportunities
for people from developing countries, particularly those countries located in
the Indo-Pacific region, to undertake full time undergraduate or postgraduate
study at participating Australian universities and Technical and Further
Education (TAFE) institutions.

The study and research
opportunities provided by Australia Awards Scholarships develop the skills and
knowledge of individuals to drive change and contribute to development in their
own countries.

Australia Awards
Scholarships, formerly known as Australian Development Scholarships (ADS),
provide opportunities for people from developing countries, particularly those
countries located in the Indo-Pacific region, to undertake full time
undergraduate or postgraduate study at participating Australian universities
and Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institutions.
