About Australia Awards
- Australia Awards Scholarships, which provide long and short term opportunities to enhance leadership, knowledge and technical skills for individuals from partner governments, tertiary institutions and strategic organisations that are driving development.
- Endeavour Awards, which provide a range of opportunities for study, research and professional development focusing on strengthening education linkages, skills and knowledge throughout the region.
- Australia Awards Fellowships, which provide a range of opportunities for Australian organisations, from all sectors, to exchange of expertise, skills and knowledge, and to deepen and broaden their links with leaders and professionals in developing countries.
Over time, the Australia Awards are helping to build enduring links between Australia and a new generation of international leaders for the 21st century.
The Australia Awards in Indonesia program carries on a tradition of providing scholarships that have been offered by the Australian Government for more than 60 years. The objective of Australia Awards in Indonesia is to enhance Indonesia’s development through the contributions of internationally qualified professionals and a strong and positive relationship with Australia.
Since 1953, more than 8,500 Indonesian scholarship recipients have studied at Australian tertiary institutions through long term and short term study, with many going on to take leadership positions and make a significant difference to Indonesia’s development.
Australia Awards in Indonesia offers two types of scholarships: postgraduate courses (Long Term Awards) and intensive tailored short courses (Short Term Awards). The most able and promising candidates are given awards following a competitive selection process.
Successful graduates will become part of the Australia Awards Global and Indonesia alumni network, a vast and actively supported community of influential alumni.

Allison Sudradjat Prize
In memory of Allison Sudradjat, the Minister Counsellor for the Australian Agency for International Development who died tragically on 7 March 2007 as a result of a plane crash in Yogyakarta. Each year, six Australian Awards Scholarship awardees who are outstanding scholars and current or emerging leaders also receive an Allison Sudradjat Prize. Four prizes are awarded in Indonesia. Individuals do not apply for the Prize, but are allocated the prize by the Joint Selection Team.
Hadi Soesastro Prize
The Hadi Soesastro Prize honours one of Indonesia’s most eminent thinkers, the late Professor Hadi Soesastro, who was a great friend of Australia. Professor Soesastro was an economist, academic and public intellectual with close personal, intellectual and policy connections with Australia who made major contributions to Asia-Pacific cooperation and development in Indonesia and Timor-Leste. The Prize is intended to supplement the academic programs of current recipients of Australia Awards (including Endeavour Scholarships) from Indonesia undertaking PhD/Doctorates in the areas of Political Economy, International Economic Relations, or Development. Two Hadi Soesastro Prizes will be granted (to one female and one male applicant) annually. Individuals can apply for this prize.
