Australia Awards Fellowships

Australia engages with developing countries at government, business, professional and community levels. Australia Awards Fellowships offer Australian organisations, from all sectors, the opportunity to deepen and broaden their links with leaders and professionals in developing countries. By providing opportunities for Fellows to undertake short term study and professional development in Australia, they aim to:

  • strengthen partnerships and links between Australian organisations and partner organisations in developing countries, in support of Australia’s economic diplomacy and public diplomacy objectives; and
  • increase the capacity of developing countries to advance priority foreign affairs and development issues of shared interest at the country, sub-regional and regional levels.

Fellowships are for current and future leaders and mid-career professionals, who will be in a position to advance priority foreign affairs and development issues. Fellowship activities are aimed at providing high-quality training, exchange of expertise, skills and knowledge, and opportunities to enhance networks on issues of shared interest. Activities can include a combination of short-term study and/or training, professional development, networking and work experience. More information is available at: http://aid.dfat.gov.au/australia-awards/pages/fellowships.aspx.

Applications are accepted from Australian organisations only. Partner country counterpart organisations and individuals are not eligible to apply for Australia Awards Fellowships. Study opportunities for individuals from developing countries are available under Australia Awards: www.australiaawards.gov.au.
