Australia’s international development assistance in the Maldives aims to contribute to long term development needs of the Maldives to promote growth and stability and strengthen human resources capacity in bilaterally agreed priority development sectors.
Australia Awards Scholarships are prestigious international awards offered by the Australian Government to the next generation of global leaders for development. Through study and research, recipients develop the skills and knowledge to drive change and help build enduring people-to-people links with Australia.
Applicants will be assessed for their professional and personal qualities, academic competence and, most importantly, their potential to impact on development challenges in the Maldives.
Scholarships are offered on the basis of merit, transparency and equal access. Applications from eligible women and people with disability are strongly encouraged.
Applications for Australia Awards Scholarships commencing in January 2018 will open on 1 February 2017 and will close on 30 April 2017.
Country specific information on Australia Awards Scholarships commencing in January 2018 will be available at www.australiaawardsmaldives.org before applications open.
