General Information Notes
Australia Awards Scholarships are an important component of Australia’s investment in education. In Indonesia, Australia Awards Scholarships provide opportunities to study in Australia at Postgraduate level. They are offered to Indonesian citizens to provide enhanced leadership, knowledge and technical skills to the Government of Indonesia, to tertiary institutions and to strategic organisations that are driving sustainable development.
Australia Awards Scholarships have been an important component of the Australian Government’s efforts to reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development since the 1950s. This is achieved through:
Australia Awards Scholarships in Indonesia are offered in two main categories: ‘Targeted’ and ‘Non-targeted’.
Applicants from the Targeted category include:
Applicants from Non-Targeted include candidates from the private sector, those that work for state university and state-owned enterprise, and everyone else.
Scholarships are for full-time study for a Master’s or Doctorate degree from Australian tertiary institutions. The scholarship provides up to nine months full-time language and academic preparation in Indonesia. Students must achieve satisfactory results in this training to be able to continue their scholarships.
Eligible candidates with disability or from organizations working with the disabled people are encouraged to apply. Women and candidates within DFAT Geographic Focus Areas are also encouraged to apply.

Choosing a Course of Study
Candidates must apply to study courses which fall within the following priority academic areas. An indicative list of the areas for study follows. This list is subject to continuous review through the six-monthly Program Coordination Committee process.
Australia Awards prioritises scholars seeking to undertake studies in support of the COVID-19 Development Response Plan priority areas, namely Health Security, Stability and Economic Recovery. A full list of priority fields is provided below.
Candidates considering study for particular professions should note that Australia Awards Scholarships does not include the practical training period required for professional registration, e.g. medical internships, legal articles etc. Successful recipients are expected to complete such training in their own country.
Selection will be based on the principles of merit and equity and will be carried out jointly on behalf of the Australian and Indonesian Governments by an independent team of Indonesian officials and academics working in partnership with Australian academics to evaluate and rank candidates. The team members will all hold Doctoral degrees obtained in Australia or be Doctoral graduates with long-term experience in the Australian university system. The process aims to identify candidates most likely to succeed in academic studies in an Australian course who will then make a substantial contribution in Indonesia.
The process will be transparent, and the eligibility and selection criteria made are available to interested parties. The final list of recipients is subject to scrutiny and endorsement by DFAT and Government of Indonesia – Ministry of State Secretariat.

DFAT strongly encourages applications from people with disability who are otherwise eligible for a scholarship.
Under the Disability Discrimination Act, Australian education institutions have to provide 'reasonable adjustments' to students with disability to assist access to study. To assess the likely support needs, appropriate assistance, and the capacity of relevant institutions to provide the assistance, awardees with a disability/special need must provide details of the disability and/or special need when they accept their offer. This information is bound by Australian privacy laws and will be disclosed only for the purpose of facilitating an accessible barrier-free learning environment.
Modifications to physical or learning environments, including additional educational supports such as sign interpreters and captioning, may be available depending on the relevant Institution's capacity. DFAT will advise the Institution of any special requirements associated with an Awardee so that the Institution can pass these details to the Institution’s Disability Liaison Officer prior to the Awardee arriving on-campus. Where an Institution is not able to provide the assistance requested, other Institutions may be recommended.
If yes, please provide details if you require special assistance or equipment to participate in the scholarship selection processes or to live and undertake studies in Australia?
