Can I take my family to Australia if I receive a scholarship from Australia Awards?

Successful candidates are able to apply for their spouse and children to join them in Australia by applying for dependent visas. This is normally only possible after arriving in Australia following commencement of their scholarship and with the approval of the university. The process will be explained at the pre-departure briefing.

It is important to note that Australia Awards does not provide any additional financial support for one’s family to travel to or live in Australia.

Australia Awards Short Course participants cannot apply for a visa for their dependents.
