The Education Destination : Australia The Education Destination 2012
>AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION 2012 111 Above: Scholarships are offered in a range of disciplines and educational levels. AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIPS The Australian Government invests over $200 million each year in international scholarships to support 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. In 2011, more than 2800 individuals from developing countries – 700 more than in 2010 – received Australia Awards. After their studies and professional development in Australia, they will return home to contribute to the development of their 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 (AusAID) 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. ALA Scholarships provide for study at masters or doctorate level in an Australian university and a leadership development program in Australia. Study programs must relate to a priority development area: disability, economic growth, education, environment, food security, gender, governance, health, human rights, infrastructure, regional stability, rural development, water and sanitation. ALA Fellowships provide short-term opportunities for study, research and professional attachment programs in Australia delivered by Australian organisations. For more details, see www.ausaid.gov.au/scholar 3. Australian Development Scholarships These scholarships aim to contribute to the long-term developmental needs of Australia’s partner countries and promote good governance, growth and human development. They provide the skills for students to drive change and influence the development outcomes in their own country. Fields of study reflect agreed priority human resource and development needs of the recipient countries, in line with Australia’s bilateral aid program.
