Australia Awards Engagement

A Study NSW Project

Enhancing linkages with the NSW Government

What are Australia Awards?

Australia Awards are prestigious international scholarships and fellowships funded by the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) offering the next generation of global leaders an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development.

Australia Awards contribute to the long-term objectives of promoting growth and stability in our region, as well as strengthening links between people and organisations to enhance mutual understanding and cooperation. They equip recipients with the skills and knowledge to drive change and contribute to the economic and social development of their own countries, in effect, building the human resource capacity of partner countries within mutually agreed development sectors.
