Australia Awards Scholarships

Applications for the 2018 round are closed.

Australia Awards Scholarships are prestigious international Scholarships and Fellowships funded by the Australian Government. They offer the next generation of global leaders an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development in Australia and for high-achieving Australians to do the same overseas.

They provide opportunities for candidates from selected participating countries to undertake full-time postgraduate study at participating Australian universities (The University of Queensland is a participating institution).

In return, Australia Awards scholars are expected to go back to their home country upon completion of their studies to contribute to their country/region's development.
