Will adjustment be made for my disability?

Yes. Applications are encouraged from people with disability, and the Program allows for reasonable adjustments to be made for successful applicants with a disability.

Applicants with a disability are encouraged to notify the Australia Awards Country Program Manager in Sri Lanka of any disability and/or pre-existing medical condition as early as possible, preferably at the time of application for an Australia Awards Scholarship. Early and full notification of a disability will not negatively affect the assessment of an applicant's eligibility or placement but will enable the Australia Awards Country Program Manager in Sri Lanka to provide appropriate support throughout the application and placement process.


What are “reasonable adjustments”?

Reasonable adjustments are measures which an education provider is required to make to ensure students with a disability can meet the academic standards of their course of study and participate on the same basis as students without a disability. Reasonable adjustments might include changes to the way a person enrols in a course, alterations to the physical environment and other facilities, and changes to the way training is delivered and skills are assessed.

Awardees with a disability are assessed and provided with reasonable adjustments to ensure that they succeed in their award.


Are the Awards open to both women and men?

Yes. At least 50 percent of the Awards will be given to qualified women applicants.
