About

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 build enduring links with Australia.

All recipients of Australia Awards become part of the Australia Global Alumni network, connecting them to Australia and to each other – building an engaged and influential global network of leaders and advocates, and establishing a network of ambassadors for Australia and its first-class education system.

Australia aims to support Myanmar’s development by:

  • working in partnership to catalyse reforms in education and economic policy
  • providing integrated health security support in Myanmar through regional and global initiatives
  • maintaining a strong focus on finding durable solutions to humanitarian crises in Myanmar
  • focusing on inclusion in programming to ensure that women and girls, people with disability, ethnic minorities, internally displaced people, at risk children, the unemployed and other minorities are central to Australia’s work.
