Australia Awards Scholarships

Australia Awards 
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.



If you intend to apply for an Australia Awards Scholarship, you are encouraged to complete either an IELTS, TOEFL or PTE language examination well before your application due.


What benefits are provided as part of Australia Awards Scholarships?
The Awards are offered for the minimum period necessary for the individual to complete the academic program specified by the Australian higher education institution, including any preparatory training. The following benefits generally apply:
> full tuition fees
> return air travel—payment of a single return, economy class airfare to and from Australia, via the most direct route
> establishment allowance—a once only payment as a contribution towards accommodation expenses, text books, study materials
> Contribution to Living Expenses (CLE) – a fortnightly contribution to basic living expenses paid at a rate determined by the department.
> Introductory Academic Program (IAP)—a compulsory program prior to the commencement of formal academic studies covering information on living and studying in Australia
> Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the duration of the award (for award holder only)—provided to cover the scholar's basic medical costs (with the exception of pre-existing conditions)
> Pre-course English (PCE) fees—if deemed necessary PCE may be available for students for in-country and/or in-Australia training

Scholars are required to leave Australia for a minimum of two years after completing their scholarship. Failure to do so will result in the scholar incurring a debt for the total accrued cost of their scholarship.
