Australia Awards is an initiative of the Australian Government which aims to promote knowledge, education links and enduring ties between Australia and the global community. The Australia Awards program allows for a variety of educational, research and professional development opportunities through the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE) and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR).
The AusAID Australia Awards Scholarships, managed by the Australian Agency for International Development, are aligned with the Australian assistance for development in Latin America and aim to overcome the lack of human resources specialised in specific development sectors identified as priorities.
Through the Australia Awards, Australia is committed to building the capacity and leadership skills of Latin Americans to enable them to contribute effectively to development in their home countries. They also aim to build people-to-people linkages at the individual, institutional and international level to help awardees overcome challenges collaboratively for sustainable development. For the academic year 2014, approximately 90 Awards will be offered to Latin American applicants at Masters by coursework or research, and at PhD level.
