Successful applicants will commence Master degree study at an Australian university of their choice in 2019, in priority areas for Vietnam’s development: governance and economic growth, transport, water and sanitation, education, gender equality, agriculture and rural development, regional stability and human rights, disability and climate change.

Applicants are assessed on their professional and personal qualities, academic competence and, most importantly, their potential to impact on development challenges in Vietnam.

Results will be announced by the end of July 2018.

Australia Awards Scholarships are prestigious international awards offered by the Australian Government to the next generation of global leaders for development. They are part of a broader investment by the Australian Government - Aus4Skills, which includes Australia Awards Short Courses and informal learning opportunities to address knowledge and skills gaps to help Vietnam realize its aspirations to become a prosperous and socially inclusive country.

The scholarships are for central and provincial agency officials (including mass organizations), staff of NGOs and Vietnamese companies, academics and researchers. People with disability, from disadvantaged rural areas and from ethnic minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. A support scheme is available to assist equal participation for these disadvantaged applicants.

 “The Australian Government is committed to helping Vietnam build its human resources and strengthen the country’s level of professional and technical knowledge and skills. To date, the Australian Government has provided over 6,000 prestigious international scholarships to Vietnamese students. I am proud of the enormous contribution they have been making to Vietnam’s development and the enduring people-to-people links with Australia”, said Australian Ambassador to Vietnam, Mr Craig Chittick.

Eligibility criteria and special conditions for applications are summarized in the Vietnam country profile. Details are available at the website, or hotline (024) 3938 7375 (08h30 - 16h30) week-days./.
