Thinking about applying for an Australia Awards Scholarship?

Why not hear from on award scholars and find out what studying in Australia means to them by watching this short film

Australia Awards Scholarships are prestigious international awards offered by the Australian Government to the next generation of global leaders for development. Through study and research, recipients develop the skills and knowledge to drive change and help build enduring people-to-people links with Australia.

Applicants are assessed on their professional and personal qualities, academic competence and, most importantly, their potential to impact on development challenges in Timor-Leste.

* Applications are strongly encouraged from women, people with a disability and other marginalised groups.

* Preference is given to those who have not had an Australian Awards scholarship before.

* A limited number of scholarships will be available for undergraduate studies. Please note only undergraduate courses not available in Timor-Leste will be considered for scholarship
