Australia Awards in Indonesia

The Australia Awards are prestigious, transformational scholarships and short courses offered to emerging leaders for study, research and professional development in Australia


For Future Applicants

Short Courses are study programs funded by the Government of Australia. Short Courses provide an opportunity for Australia Awards in Indonesia to be flexible and responsive to the needs of Indonesian organisations or sectors. This condition is especially relevant for senior level decision makers and influencers who are unable to be released for long-term study.

Short Courses have three parts, pre and post-course workshops and a 2-week program in Australia (pre-Covid-19). During Covid-19 all courses are delivered online. The online courses are delivered over a 2-4 month period, with 1-2 course modules per week.

The Short Courses cycle consists of three parts: a pre-course workshop, in-Australia course (during Covid-19 courses are delivered online), and a post-course workshop. It is compulsory for successful applicants to attend all parts. Failure to comply with the participation requirement will result in cancellation of participation.

Awardees will be given a Certificate of Completion upon completing the Short Courses.
