Australia Awards Scholarships

The Australia Awards scholarship is an initiative of the Australian Government to promote knowledge, education links, and enduring ties between Australia and our neighbours through an extensive scholarship program.

It aims to equip the next generation of world leaders from developing nations with the skills and research to improve their country's future.

Monash University offers a range of courses suited to the development needs of the Australia Awards program and its scholarship holders. Check the Australia Awards website to see your country's area of priority or see below for relevant postgraduate programs.

You should review our fields of research to help find a possible research area or contact the relevant academic unit. If you are having trouble finding a potential supervisor, submit an online enquiry to the Monash, Graduate Education Office, who can then direct you to the most appropriate area.
