What can I study?
Study programs must relate to your country’s priority areas for development. These are listed on the
participating country profiles.
What can't I study?
Australia Awards are not available for training in areas related to flying aircraft, nuclear technology or military training.
Where can I study?
You can study at any participating Australian institution.
Can I apply for both an Australia Award Scholarship and an Australia Awards Endeavour Scholarship?
Yes, you may apply for other awards. However, you may accept only one. For example, if you accept an Australia Awards Scholarship you cannot hold any other Australian Government-sponsored scholarship (such as an Australia Awards Endeavour Scholarship).
Can I apply for an award if I'm intending to migrate or if I have permanent residency?
No. Australia Awards are not available to intending migrants or those who have Australian permanent residency. Awardees are required to leave Australia for a minimum of two years after completing their scholarship. Failure to do so will result in the awardee incurring a debt for the total accrued cost of their award.
