Australia Awards are prestigious international scholarships and fellowships funded by the Australian Government offering high-achieving students the opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development. Categories include:

  • Scholarships and Fellowships
  • Leadership Program
  • Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships
  • Fellowships (administered by ACIAR)

Sponsored students receive financial assistance from a government, organisation or company (not private individuals or relatives) to undertake studies at The University of Western Australia (UWA). Funding of the scholarship is usually from an organisation within the student's home country.

UWA welcomes sponsored students, but it is important to note that students need to make their own enquiries within their home country or own organisation about how to become a sponsored student.

These scholarships are not administered by UWA but are listed on our scholarships website for your convenience.  Below is a full list of recognised sponsoring authorities by country.

UWA offers a range of scholarships to prospective international students to help them achieve excellence with the assistance of financial support.
