02. What are Australia Awards Fellowships?

The Australia Awards Fellowships aim to develop current and aspiring leaders working in priority areas to increase institutional capacity of partner countries and to advance key regional policy objectives.

Australia Awards Fellowships are designed to provide short term opportunities for study, research and professional attachment programs in Australia. Applications are submitted by Australian organisations once a year. The host Australian organisations, in-cooperation with partner agencies from eligible countries such as Sri Lanka, nominate fellows to participate in the program.

The Australia Awards Fellowships are selected through a competitive process.
