Australia’s international development assistance in Indonesia works in partnership with the Government of Indonesia to achieve a prosperous, democratic and safe Indonesia.

Australia Awards Scholarships (AAS) are prestigious international scholarships 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 help build enduring people-to-people links with Australia.

AAS are available in Indonesia for postgraduate studies in the priority fields of study of:

  • sustainable growth and economic management
  • investing in people
  • democracy, justice and good governance
  • safety and peace.

Eligibility for an AAS is based on your professional and personal qualities, academic competence and, most importantly, your potential to meet Indonesia’s needs as a developing country. Such as the important development work that Curtin AAS alumnus, Dr Ahmad Agus is doing in designing and building solar powered water pumps for remote villages in Indonesia: 

“I chose to study at Curtin because it is much more progressive in all aspects and has an excellent reputation in looking after international students. My time studying at Curtin is one of the best experiences of my life. It is advancing my knowledge, skills and capacity with international quality. I am currently pursuing a career in the Directorate General of Treasury in the Ministry of Finance in the Republic of Indonesia. I would like to be a key policy maker in the Ministry of Finance in the future.”
