Australia Awards Promotional Events - March 2018

Australia Awards facilitated two information sessions in early March 2018. The aim of the sessions were to promote the next round of Australia Awards Scholarships and ensure interested applicants had a good understanding of the program and the process for applying. One session was held for public sector employees, while the other session was for the private sector and general public. Both sessions were held at the Chantilly’s conference room and were well-attended with many questions asked in regard to the eligibility criteria, study programs, on-line application process and student- life in Australia.


General feedback from interested applicants was positive, with applicants appreciating the opportunity to ask questions and get clarification about Australia Awards.


We encourage interested applicants to monitor our website and attend future sessions.
