About Australia Awards Scholarships

Australia Awards Scholarships are long term development awards administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Australian Government.

They aim to contribute to the long term development needs of Australia’s partner countries in line with bilateral and regional agreements.

They provide opportunities for people from numerous countries, including Vietnam, to undertake full time undergraduate or postgraduate study at participating Australian universities and Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institutions.
