The Prime Minister’s Australia Asia Awards will provide scholarships for the best and brightest
university students from Australia and Asia. They provide the unique opportunity for
postgraduates and undergraduates to undertake not only international study and research, but
also internships or work placements. 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.
