Prestigious Australia Awards Scholarships on Offer for Study in 2024

The Australian Embassy in Laos is pleased to announce the opening of applications for the prestigious Australia Awards Scholarships for study in Australia commencing in 2024.

The scholarships are aimed at future Lao leaders in the fields of government, business, and civil society. The Australian Government will accept applications for study, commencing in 2024, through the website from 1 February to 1 May 2023.

Australia Awards Scholarships offer Lao people a world-class Australian education in a friendly, safe, and multicultural environment. Scholars gain valuable knowledge and skills in priority areas of study that will help them make a difference in Laos. The experience will also provide scholars the opportunity to forge links with Australia’s public, private, academic, and civil society networks.

“We are proud to help develop Australian-educated Lao leaders in fields that are important for Laos’ development,” explained Mr. Dan Heldon, Chargé d’affaires at the Australian Embassy in Laos. “We encourage anyone who is interested to apply now. We especially encourage women, people living with disability, and other marginalized groups to apply, as these scholarships can be a life-changing experience.”

Australia Awards Scholarships’ priority areas for Laos are economics, health security, stability (eg. education, gender equality, water resource management), and sustainable environment. Scholarships will be offered for study at the Vocational Education and Training (VET) level, Master’s level, and for Doctorate Degrees (PhD).

Applicants are assessed on their leadership attributes, academic competence, and potential to make an impact on development challenges in Laos. Successful applicants receive a comprehensive package of support to study in Australia, including additional English language training where required, and have the opportunity to join an Australian alumni network of over 1,300 people on return to Laos.
