The Australian Government recognises that education develops skills and knowledge, builds enduring people, country and professional links, and has the power to influence positive change.
The Awards strive to develop leadership potential and stimulate lasting change by empowering a global network of talented individuals through high-quality education experiences in Australia and overseas.
Recipients return home with new ideas and knowledge, and the ability to make a significant contribution to their home countries as leaders in their field.
The Awards also demonstrate Australia’s commitment to providing education opportunities to improve living standards and stimulate economic growth in developing countries.
For Australia, the Awards build an engaged and influential global network of leaders, advocates and change-makers and establish a network of ambassadors across the world.
The Awards also contribute to the productivity of Australia and the development of people-to-people links between Australia, our regional neighbours and the broader international community
Eligibility requirements and application processes vary throughout the Australia Awards programs. Please follow the detailed information about the eligibility criteria and selection process for each program.
