Australian Development Scholarships
Overview of Australian Development Scholarships ($111.8 million, 2010-2015)*
*excludes managing contractor and in-Vietnam costs
The Australian Development Scholarship Program in Vietnam aims to improve the quality of human resources in Vietnam through long term study in Australia. These scholarships equip leaders with skills and knowledge to personally drive change and influence development outcomes in Vietnam. They also strengthen public institutions and promote linkages between Australia and Vietnam. Priority areas of study include economic integration, climate change, water and sanitation, university teaching and research capacity.
More than 3,000 Vietnamese have been awarded scholarships to study in Australia since 1977. Between 2010 and 2015, the program will give an additional 1,380 students this opportunity. The funding for the program includes in-Vietnam and in-Australia costs, including administration, course fees, support activities and pre-departure training. AusAID manage the overall scholarships program but it is implemented in Vietnam by Coffey International Development. More information about the program is available from the
Australian Development Scholarships in Vietnam website.
