Prime Minister's Australia Asia Awards


The Awards aim to build deep and enduring education and professional linkages between Australia and Asia. They also provide an opportunity for Australian universities and the Australian Government to work in partnership to identify and reward high calibre scholars.

Award Holders also have the exciting opportunity to undertake an internship to gain occupational and work related knowledge and skills; and build networks with industry and other organisations in the region. Twenty scholarships will also be awarded to the top international Endeavour Postgraduate Award recipients from the ten participating countries in Asia each year.


Australian applicants must be citizens and/or permanent residents of Australia. Australian Award Holders must retain Australian Citizenship and/or Australian Permanent Residency status for the duration of their Award program. In the event that their Australian citizenship/residency status lapses, the Award will be revoked or terminated from the date of effect. The Award Holder may continue their program but they will no longer be funded to do so.
