Australia Awards Fellowships

Australia Awards Fellowships aim to develop leadership, address priority regional development issues, and build partnerships and links between Australian organisations and their partner organisations in developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region, Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and the Middle East.

Australia Awards Fellowships engage with a wide cross-section of the Australian community on aid delivery issues and priorities for development. Through Australia Awards Fellowships, Australian organisations have the opportunity to build and strengthen links with organisations in developing countries by offering professional development opportunities in Australia.

The goal of Australia Awards Fellowships is to develop appropriately trained current and aspiring leaders in priority areas, who, in the short to medium term, will be in a position to advance key regional policy objectives and increase institutional capacity of partner countries. Australia Awards Fellowships are designed to complement individual bilateral country programs by offering flexible learning opportunities that address current and emerging needs at the country, sub-regional and regional levels. 

Australia Awards Fellowships do not lead to academic qualifications. Instead, they are designed to provide short term opportunities for study, research and professional attachment programs in Australia, delivered by Australian organisations, to nominated fellows from eligible countries.

Through Australia Awards Fellowships, Australian organisations can apply for funding to support a range of professional development activities that will build expertise and leadership capacity in eligible countries.


Overseas counterpart organisations and individual fellows must be sponsored by an Australian organisation, and may not apply directly for Australia Awards Fellowships. They may, however, initiate contact with an Australian organisation to explore the organisation’s interest in applying for fellowship funding.

Australia Awards Fellowships support a wide variety of areas and sectors. Australian organisations are encouraged to design programs that address priority areas, including disability and development, economic growth, education, environment, food security, gender, governance, health, human rights, infrastructure, mining for development, regional stability, rural development and water and sanitation.
