Help Make a World Difference with Australian Development Awards
 
Do you want to be part of a new generation of global leaders for development with strong links to Australia? The Australian Government wants you to be a part of it too.
 
Applications are now open for Australia Awards Scholarships. These are provided under the Australian Government's aid program for citizens of Nepal. They target people with the potential to make a real difference.
If you are keen to gain new leadership and technical skills to help build your community, country or region then apply for an Australia Award Scholarship. It is an opportunity to gain a post-graduate qualification at an Australian university.
The Award will give you the opportunity and help you on your way to achieve great things. Through a formal program of study and practical experience, you will learn skills and knowledge to drive change and influence economic and social development in Nepal.
 
You will not develop your capacity and leadership skills, you will be joining an international network of alumni who share a passion for sustainable development driven by people-to- people links at the individual, institutional and country levels.
 
Our priorities are yours
Health, education, livelihoods / poverty alleviation, water, sanitation and hygiene, governance (economics and public policy targeted to applicants from the public sector only) are the key areas where Australia Awards recipients are making a difference.
 
In line with AusAID's South Asia Regional Strategy, applicants from Bhutan, Nepal and India who are engaged in Water Resource Management will be considered for these awards.
Australia Awards Scholarships provide opportunities for all who meet the eligibility requirements. People from all walks of life are welcome to apply.
