Australia Awards Scholarships

Australia Awards Scholarships (AAS) are prestigious international scholarships funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and aim to contribute to the development needs of Australia’s partner countries in line with bilateral and regional agreements.  They provide opportunities for the next generation of global leaders to undertake full time undergraduate or postgraduate study at participating Australian universities.

Curtin will work with AAS recipients to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to drive change and contribute to the economic and social development in your home country and build enduring connections within the community. Such as the important capacity building work that Curtin Australia Awards alumnus, Netty Muharni, is doing in Banda Aceh, Indonesia.
