How to apply for an Australia Awards Scholarship

Before you apply:

  • Check the open and close dates for your country, and select your country of citizenship/residency from the list of participating countries for specific information on eligibility, priority areas and how to apply. See the participating country page for opening and closing dates.
  • If you intend to apply, you must read the Scholarships Policy Handbook. The handbook provides information including general eligibility requirements, selection processes, entitlements and awardee responsibilities. Note that the department may revise and update the handbook at any time without notice.
  • Some countries encourage and allow you to apply online (only open until 30 April 2015) while others require hard-copy applications. See your participating country profile for more information.

Once you have checked the opening and closing dates for your country, refer to the Participating Country Profile to see which method of application they will accept.

For more information on the application process, please check the website in February 2015.​
