About Australia Awards

The Australia Awards include:

  • 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.

Australia Awards in Indonesia

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.
