Mongolia Australian Scholarships Program
The Mongolia Australian Scholarships Program (MASP) is designed to improve the human resource needs of selected Mongolian government agencies, develop economic sectors of priority to Mongolia, and enhance the opportunities for knowledge sharing and institutional linkages between Australia and Mongolia.
Masters level scholarships are offered to Mongolians from both the public and private sector in areas including health, mining, education and natural resource management, in line with Mongolia’s National Development Strategy. In 2012, 38 masters-level students will study in Australia through the program.
Former Foreign Minister Nyamaa Enkhbold (an Australian Scholarships graduate) said in July 2007 that, 'the program is one of the most effective and best implemented programs among aid assistance provided by developed countries'.

*AusAID is committed to publishing documents and data concerning Australia’s official development assistance in a way that is comprehensive, accessible and current. Information published on the Indonesia Program is currently not complete and further initiatives will be added over the course of the next few months. The AusAID practice will be to publish documents once finalised and where appropriate after the partner government and any other partners directly involved in the delivery of the initiative have been consulted. Not all material published on this site is created by AusAID and therefore not all documents reflect the views of the Australian Government. In limited circumstances some information may be withheld for reasons including privacy and commercial sensitivity. An important objective of the Transparency Initiative is to promote broad-based understanding, analysis and discussion of aid issues and to inform the future delivery of Australia’s aid program.
