Australia Awards Fellowships
Australia Awards Fellowships aim to develop leadership, address priority regional development issues, and build partnerships and linkages between Australian organisations and partner organisations in developing countries including countries in Africa. The goal of the Australia Awards Fellowships program is to develop appropriately trained current and aspiring leaders in priority areas, who, in the short-to-medium-term, will be in a position to advance key regional policy objectives and increase institutional capacity of partner countries. Australia Awards Fellowships are designed to complement individual bilateral country programs by offering flexible fellowship placements which address current and emerging needs at the country, sub-regional and regional levels.
Australian Host Organisations can apply for funding twice a year to support Africans on Australian Award Fellowships.
Note that applications are accepted from Australian organisations only; individuals are not eligible to apply. The opening date for the next round of Fellowship applications is being revised. Round 16 is expected to open in early 2016.
