How we are helping

The awards help build the skills and capacities of Africa’s future leaders in key sectors. In addition, they foster an engaged and influential network of leaders, reformers and advocates, while promoting valuable links between Australia and Africa.

The awards contribute to African leadership and human capacity development in areas of critical skills shortages. All courses are offered in areas where Australia is a world leader and where partner governments have requested assistance, namely in agriculture (including ocean governance), extractives governance and public policy (including trade policy and negotiations, and public-private infrastructure partnerships).

The awards offer Masters Scholarships, tailored Short Courses, and an Alumni program.

  • Masters Scholarships for study in Australia are offered to high-calibre future leaders across public, private and community sectors.
  • Short Course awards are offered as formal courses of study and training for up to two months delivered by an institution in Australia or Africa, or a combination of both.
  • The Alumni program comprises a network of Alumni associations and activities such as ongoing professional development and networking opportunities for registered Alumni.

The awards have a strong focus on equality, emphasising equity and inclusivity for women and people with disabilities. The program’s aim is for an equal number of women and men to receive awards. In addition, the program is recognised for ensuring that people with disabilities, and people working in support of people with disabilities, have access to awards and are well supported while on-Award.
