About Long Term Awards

The overarching goal of Australia’s development program is to partner with Indonesia to boost inclusive growth and productive jobs. It aims to do this by improving Indonesia’s competitiveness through strengthening the impact of Indonesia’s own resources. Australia Awards Scholarships contribute to this goal by supporting human development for a productive and healthy society in Indonesia.

The Long Term Awards are Australia Awards postgraduate (Masters or PhD/Doctorate level) scholarships offered to the next generation of Indonesian leaders for development. Through study and research, recipients develop the skills and knowledge to drive change and help build enduring people-to-people links with Australians.

For the 2022 intake, Australia Awards prioritise Indonesians seeking to undertake studies in support of the COVID-19 Development Response Plan priority areas, namely Health Security, Stability and Economic Recovery. A full list of priority fields is provided here. The applicants will be assessed for their professional and personal qualities, academic competence and, most importantly, their potential to impact on the development challenges in Indonesia.

Applications are strongly encouraged from women, people with disabilities and people from Geographic Focus Areas (currently Aceh, East Nusa Tenggara, West Nusa Tenggara, Papua, West Papua, Maluku and North Maluku). The Geographic Focus Areas may be reviewed for future rounds.
