Australia’s international development assistance aims to assist Vietnam to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and become an industrialised country by 2020. Australia Awards Scholarships are a key component of Australia’s assistance to Vietnam and target priority human resource and development needs of Vietnam.
Australia Awards Scholarships are fully paid scholarships and up to 175 scholarships are available to Vietnamese for post-graduate studies (master's and PhD) at prestigious Australian universities in 2014. Awardees will be assessed for their professional and personal qualities, academic competence and, most importantly, their potential to contribute to development in Vietnam.
Men and women, especially ethnic minorities, from provincial and rural areas who meet eligibility and selection criteria are strongly encouraged to apply. Disadvantaged applicants – persons with disability and persons from designated poor areas – are given special consideration.
Since 1974, over 4,000 Vietnamese students have studied at Australian tertiary institutions through Australian Government scholarships, with many Australia Awards alumni going on to make a significant difference in the development of Vietnam. Please refer to more information on the contribution of Vietnamese scholarship recipients to Vietnam's development.
