The Australian Government is strongly committed to being at the forefront of efforts to empower women, promote gender equality and instil rights of people with disability. Social inclusion continues to be advanced across all efforts in the aid program, in foreign policy efforts and in economic diplomacy. Reflecting this commitment, Australia Awards in Indonesia supports equal opportunity and access to women and people with disability. Women, people living with disability and people living in rural areas are strongly encouraged to apply for an Australia Awards Scholarship and participate in the Australia Awards and relevant alumni activities in Indonesia. Each year Australia Awards in Indonesia reviews its support programs for people from disadvantaged groups to ensure the support is targeted, successful and sustainable.
