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.

* 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
