Targeting of Awards

Australia Awards Scholarships in Indonesia are offered in two main categories: “Targeted” and “Non-Targeted” Categories.

Applicants from the Targeted category include:

  • Candidates from our Geographic Focus Areas (GFAs): Aceh, East Nusa Tenggara, West Nusa Tenggara, Papua, West Papua, Maluku, and North Maluku.
  • Embassy partners: any candidate nominated by the Australian Embassy in Indonesia.
  • Government of Indonesia agencies: any candidate from a central, provincial or local government agency excluding employees of state universities and state-owned enterprises.

Applicants from the Non-Targeted category include candidates from the private sector, academics, those that work for state-owned enterprise, and everyone else.

Scholarships are for full-time study for a Masters or PhD/Doctorate degree from an Australian tertiary institution. The scholarship provides up to nine months full-time language and academic preparation in Indonesia. Students must achieve satisfactory results in this training to be able to continue their scholarships.

Social inclusion

Eligible candidates with a disability or from organisations working with the disabled are encouraged to apply.  Women and candidates within DFAT Geographic Focus Areas are also encouraged to apply.
