The Education Destination : Australia The Education Destination 2011
132 Australia – The Education Destination couRSeS foR caReeRS Australia has scholarships for international students available at all levels of study including vocational, undergraduate and postgraduate. The aim of these scholarships is to encourage international education, student exchange and ongoing links between countries. The scholarships on offer vary; a full scholarship may cover airfares, visa costs, tuition fees and a living allowance while a partial scholarship may cover part of your tuition fees. Most international students in Australia are full-fee paying students who are not on scholarships. There are many applications for a limited number of scholarships so you should check the selection requirements to see if you are eligible. Scholarships are offered by the Australian Government, individual universities, schools and education institutions, private organisations, international foundations, and other government departments and organisations in your home country. Development and achievement scholarships The Australian Government invests over $200 million each year in international scholarships which, at any time, support around 5000 international students, researchers and professionals to study in Australia and for Australians to study, research and undertake professional development abroad. The Australian Government funds the Australia Awards, which aim to promote knowledge, education links and enduring ties between Australia and its neighbours through extensive scholarship programs. These programs support growth in the region and build lasting links between students, schools and countries. The Australia Awards have two streams: an achievement stream that targets the best and brightest students, researchers and professionals to come to Australia and for Australians to do the same offshore; and a development stream that builds capacity in developing countries. The Australia Awards bring together the scholarships offered by the Australian Agency for International Development and the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations. Scholarships offered by the Australian Government may be in specific fields of study, dependent on the skills needs of your home country. 1. Endeavour Awards The Endeavour Awards support excellence in international study, research and professional development and are open to students from the Asia-Pacific region, Middle East, Europe and the Americas. In this award, high achievers are chosen from their respective fields. The Endeavour program aims to strengthen linkages by bringing leading researchers, professionals and students from around the world to Australia for study. You can apply for a scholarship in postgraduate research or study, research fellowships, vocational study or professional development. To find out more, see www.endeavour.deewr.gov.au 2. Australian Leadership Awards The Australian Leadership Awards (ALA) concentrate on developing leaders who have the ability to build partnerships, economic policy reform and development outcomes in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as in their own countries. The ALA Scholarships and Fellowships provide quality education to current and future leaders from 30 countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
