Australia Awards Fellowships Announced
Thursday, 30th May 2013 at 11:46 am

More than 700 senior officials and mid-career professionals from developing countries will have the opportunity to work with Australian organisations to receive training and professional development in a range of industries under the latest round of Australia Awards Fellowships.

The latest round of the Awards, funded by AusAID, will see 37 Australian organisations selected to provide 733 Australia Awards Fellows from 51 developing countries with training and professional development.

The Australia Awards Fellowships provide recipients with the opportunity to undertake short-term study, research and professional development within Australian organisations which focus on health, education, leadership, government, economic growth and disability and development.

Foreign Minister Bob Carr Carr said Australia Awards Fellowships help Australia’s closest neighbours respond to development issues.

“'Australia Awards Fellowships provide education and training to professionals who are in a position to advance the development of their countries when they return home,” he said.

Senator Carr said the programs also strengthened links between organisations in Australia and developing countries in the region.

“The latest round of Fellowships aimed to build capacity in a variety of sectors including border management and people movement in Indonesia, avoidable blindness in Myanmar and Laos, health in Timor Leste; blood transfusion services in the Pacific, and dispute resolution in Cambodia.”

Almost 75 per cent of the latest round of Fellows are from Asia. The first of the 733 Fellows will arrive in July.

The next round, for programs beginning in 2014, is now open and will close on June 19.

The successful Australia Awards Fellowships funded through the latest round is available here.
