Australian Leadership Awards - Scholarships

Applications are being accepted for postgraduate scholarship positions at an Australian university in 2009 under the Australian Leadership Award (ALA) Scholarship program.

These prestigious Australian scholarships are targeted at high achievers to undertake study in Australia at masters or doctoral level. Scholars also participate in a unique Leadership Development Program.

ALA Scholarships are tailored for people with potential to assume leadership roles and influence social and economic policy reform and development outcomes at home and in the region.

Entry is competitive and open to citizens of Asia-Pacific countries where Australia has an active aid program. There are approximately 30 scholarships on offer to the Pacific Region. ALA Scholarships are managed through Australia’s aid agency, AusAID.

Applications are open to all fields of study, however, scholars in international trade, pandemics, security and climate change (including clean energy) are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants should have a record of high-level undergraduate or postgraduate academic achievement and advanced English language ability. An unconditional offer of admission from an Australian university is required at the time of application. Prospective applicants should contact their university of choice well in advance of the closing date for applications- 30 June 2008.
