The scholarships are for central and provincial agency officials (including mass organisations), staff of NGOs and Vietnamese companies, academics and researchers. People with disability, from disadvantaged rural areas and from ethnic minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. A support scheme is available to assist equal participation for these disadvantaged applicants.

Successful applicants will commence Master degree study at an Australian university of their choice in 2020, in priority areas for Vietnam’s development: governance and economic growth, transport, water and sanitation, education, gender equality, agriculture and rural development, regional stability and human rights, disability and climate change.

Applicants are assessed on their professional and personal qualities, academic competence and, most importantly, their potential to impact on development challenges in Vietnam.

Please refer to the How to Apply section on the Australia Awards in Vietnam website for more information
