Australia Awards Fellowships aim to build networks of influence and leadership by strengthening partnerships between Australian organisations and partner organisations in the region. Fellowships target senior and mid-career officials and professionals who are in a position to advance development outcomes in priority areas and increase the institutional capacity of partner countries through their leadership.
Through Australia Awards Fellowships, Australian organisations can apply for funding to host and support a range of professional development activities including: work attachment; supervised research; a management or leadership course; a study tour; program meetings and visits or a combination of these. Fellowships can vary in length, ranging from 2 weeks to 52 weeks. A strong feature of a Fellowship is its flexibility. They range from specialist training of Timorese doctors in the endoscopy departments at two leading Australian hospitals, to training government officers from Vietnam on coastal and marine conservation and sustainability.
Australia Awards Fellowships provide short-term opportunities for in-Australia study, research and professional development activities, hosted by Australian organisations – and do not lead to academic qualifications. Application rounds are held through a competitive selection process.
Australian organisations can request funding of up to AUD $34,500 per Fellow, to a maximum of 15 Fellows to cover:
