The Australia Awards aim to promote knowledge, education links and enduring ties between Australia and our neighbours through Australia's extensive scholarship programs. The Australia Awards initiative will, over time, build a new generation of global leaders with strong links to Australia. Australia Awards bring together international scholarships provided by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Department of Education, and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research.
Australia Awards Scholarships, administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, aim to contribute to the long-term development needs of Cambodia by providing opportunities for Cambodians to undertake full-time postgraduate study at participating Australian universities. Through study and research, recipients develop the skills and knowledge to drive change and help build enduring people-to-people links with Australia.
DFAT’s Australia Awards include the Australia Awards Scholarships, Australia Awards Fellowships and the Australia Awards Pacific Scholarships. They provide opportunities for long and short-term study and professional development.
The overall global goal of the Australia Awards is to support partner countries to progress their development goals and have positive and productive relationships with Australia, contributing to security and economic growth in the region.
