Australia Awards are prestigious international scholarships funded by the Australian Government, offering the next generation of Filipino leaders an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development.

The program has two categories – open and targeted. The open category is offered to Filipino leaders from both public and private sector who are interested to pursue postgraduate studies in Australia and implement a development project in the Philippines. Meanwhile, the targeted category is offered to Australia’s key partner agencies delivering priority development initiatives. The partner organisation nominates applicants from their agency who are expected to contribute to their organisational development upon return.
