These scholars bring home new knowledge and skills to help drive development. Australia has provided more than 3,500 Filipinos scholarships to study in Australia since the 1950s.

The Australia Awards offer high-achieving individuals in the Philippines the opportunity to develop their leadership potential by studying in Australia and joining an extensive network of fellow change-makers across the world.

The Australia Awards provide recipients internationally recognised qualifications from Australian institutions and the tools to contribute to their workplaces and communities.

The Australian Embassy in the Philippines hosted a welcome ceremony to celebrate the success of the graduates. The ceremony provided recently returned awardees the opportunity to connect with previous scholars to discuss how to best contribute to development in the Philippines using an Australian education. The event was held at the Novotel Manila Araneta Centre in Quezon City from 9 to 10 October 2017.
