Short course awards will meet the long term outcomes of the Program as follows:

  1. Alumni from priority groups or organisations, and other Program participants are delivering positive forms of development contributions in priority sectors and/or locations
  2. Alumni have positive links with Australians and Australian organisations, with other alumni, and with other global, regional and local networks
  3. Australia is viewed as a valued partner.

All short courses awards delivered under the Program will:

  • Address specified learning outcomes
  • Be delivered by an approved Australian Higher Education provider or an Australian Registered Training Organisation


This Handbook provides guidelines for Course Providers to meet the goal and outcomes of the Australia Awards program. It will be reviewed regularly and updated to reflect new initiatives and changes in policy directions.
