Australia Awards logo

Australia Awards managed through Australia’s aid program consist of:

  • Australia Awards Scholarships
  • Australia Awards Pacific Scholarships
  • Australia Awards Fellowships.

There are a number of supplementary programs associated with Australia Awards Scholarships including the Australia Awards Leadership Program, the Prime Minister’s Pacific Program and the Allison Sudradjat Prize.

The Australia Awards program does NOT come under Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade – Australian Aid branding. The program has its own logo because it is a whole-of-government brand. Its use is governed by its own brand guide and style guide. More information on the Australia Awards
