Australia Awards in Mongolia
Australia Awards in Mongolia is designed to improve the human resource needs of selected Mongolian government agencies, develop economic sectors of priority to Mongolia, and enhance the opportunities for knowledge sharing and institutional linkages between Australia and Mongolia.
Masters level scholarships are offered to Mongolians from both the public and private sector in areas including health, mining, education and natural resource management, in line with Mongolia’s National Development Strategy. In 2012, 38 masters-level students will study in Australia through the program.
Former Foreign Minister Nyamaa Enkhbold (an Australia Awards graduate) said in July 2007 that, 'the program is one of the most effective and best implemented programs among aid assistance provided by developed countries'.

*The Australian aid program is committed to publishing documents and data concerning Australia’s official development assistance in a way that is comprehensive, accessible and current. Our practice is to publish documents once finalised and where appropriate after the partner government and any other partners directly involved in the delivery of the initiative have been consulted. Not all material published on this site is created by the Australian aid program and therefore not all documents reflect our views.
