Australia Awards Scholarships

Australia’s international development assistance in Vietnam helps promote prosperity, reduce poverty, and enhance political stability.

Australia Awards scholarships are prestigious international awards offered by the Australian Government to the next generation of global leaders for development. Through study and research, recipients develop the skills and knowledge to drive change and help build enduring people-to-people links with Australia.

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

Applications are strongly encouraged from women, people with disability and other marginalised groups. A support scheme is available to assist equal participation by applicants with disability and from other marginalised groups.

Since 1974, over 6,000 Vietnamese students have studied at Australian tertiary institutions through Australian Government scholarships, with many Australia Awards alumni going on to make a significant difference in the development of Vietnam. Please refer to more information on the contribution of Vietnamese scholarship recipients to Vietnam's development.
