Country Framework
In 2011, Australia announced an expanded aid program in Burma with a more broad-based development objective. The increase recognizes the immense development task faced by current and future generations of Burmese people.
Australia's aid program targets health (especially for mothers and children), basic education, food security and sustainable livelihoods. The aid program also recognises the serious and sustained decline in the human capital of Burma by including efforts to build the capacity of people and institutions in priority areas.
Australia’s assistance is delivered through United Nations agencies and Australian and international non-government organizations.
Type, Level and Number of Scholarships
Australia will provide scholarships to Burmese citizens to undertake postgraduate studies in Australia beginning in the 2013 academic year. Awards will predominately be at Masters level; PhDs may be available for exceptional applicants who can demonstrate ability to transfer their research skills, particularly in the areas of focus of Australia’s aid program, on return to Burma.
Both Australian Development Scholarships (ADS) and Australian Leadership Awards Scholarships (ALAS) will be offered to Burmese applicants.
Australian Development Scholarships
These are long term development awards providing people with the opportunity to obtain tertiary qualifications at an Australian tertiary institution.
Australian Leadership Awards
Up to 200 of the most outstanding Australian Development Scholarship candidates across the globe will be offered an Australian Leadership Award in addition to their scholarship.
These extra entitlements will include a Leadership for Development Program designed to enhance leadership knowledge and skills. Recipients will be brought together with other Australian Leadership Awardees for leadership training, development discussions and the chance to build valuable networks.
Selections will be based on the applicant’s professional and personal qualities, academic competence and, most importantly, their potential impact on development challenges in Burma.
