What are the Australia Awards?

Australia Awards are prestigious international awards offered by the Australian Government that aim to promote knowledge, education links and enduring ties between Australia, its neighbors and the global community. Australia Awards include the international scholarships offered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the Department of Industry, Innovation, Research and Tertiary Education and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research.

Australia Awards include the Australia Awards Scholarships which provide opportunities for long-term study and aim to:

  • develop capacity and leadership skills so that individuals can contribute to development in their home country
  • build people-to-people links at the individual, institutional and country levels.

Australia Awards Scholarships are long term study and professional development opportunities available to qualified people from Bangladesh to study full-time in Australia. They equip scholars with skills and knowledge to drive change and influence development outcomes in Bangladesh. The selection process for this is based on merit, academic achievement and the relevance of proposed study programs to development priorities agreed between the governments of Australia and Bangladesh.
