Australia Awards Scholarships For International Students 2024/2025 – Apply Now


Australia Awards Scholarships are a long-term initiative of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade designed to contribute to the development needs of Australia’s partner countries in line with bilateral and regional agreements. The scholarships provide opportunities for individuals from developing countries, particularly those in the Indo-Pacific region, to undertake full-time undergraduate or postgraduate study at participating Australian universities and Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institutions. By offering study and research opportunities, the Australia Awards Scholarships aim to develop the skills and knowledge of individuals to drive change and contribute to the development of their own countries.

Applicants from eligible African countries must meet several conditions, including being a minimum of 25 years of age on 1 February 2025, having at least five years of post-graduate work experience in a field relative to their field of study, and not already holding or undertaking a Master’s degree or equivalent.
