The Australia Awards are prestigious international scholarships and fellowships that are funded by the Australian government and offer the next generation of global leaders an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development.
In 2012, the Australian government invested $334.2 million in Australia Awards, enabling 4,900 recipients from more than 145 countries to undertake study, research and professional development.
The government has been supporting international scholarships for 60 years, beginning with the Colombo Plan in the 1950s. Since then, more than 100,000 people have benefited from these scholarships.
In 2012, Indonesia, Vietnam and Papua New Guinea were the three largest recipient countries of Australia Awards, with 55 per cent of incoming recipients from the Asia region.
CAUSINDY is proud to partner with an organisation that has such a strong track record in developing person-to-person links between Australia and Asia.
