The Australia Awards Scholarship provides eligible people with the opportunity to gain an internationally recognized qualification from an Australian institution.
It includes all the necessary support and funding to complete one’s study.
The scholarship aims to boost its recipients’ career through knowledge, leadership skills and the links they create both in Australia and through the Australia Global Alumni network.
According to the Australia Awards Nepal (AAN), recipients of the scholarship can make a vital contribution to the social and economic development of Nepal, once they return home.
The application process is transparent and competitive, providing equal opportunity to all eligible applicants, regardless of gender, ethnicity or disability, says AAN.
Applications for Australia Awards Scholarships commencing in 2021 are now open and will close 30 April 2020.
Australia Awards Scholarships for Nepal will be offered to undertake Master’s degree study programs in the priority development sectors of Economic Development; Education; Health; Governance; Gender Equality, Disability-inclusiveness and Social Inclusion; and Water Resource Management.
