To all our stakeholders,

Thank you for your ongoing support during this unprecedented time. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact all nations, organisations and operations across the globe. Currently, Australia Awards–Africa has paused most activities due to the restrictions and uncertainty of international travel to Australia and around Africa. We are not accepting new applications for scholarships at this time.

The well-being of our alumni and scholars remains our top priority, and the program will continue to provide them with support and information as the need arises.

From the Australia Awards–Africa team

Welcome to Australia Awards

The Australia Awards is the cornerstone of the Australian Government's development assistance program for Africa. It provides access to postgraduate education, training and professional development opportunities for suitably qualified Africans from eligible countries. On their return to the workplace, Australia Awards alumni are expected to contribute to the development of their home countries.
