Australia Awards Program

In November 2009, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced the Australia Awards, which bring the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) and the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) scholarships together under the banner of the Australia Awards program, http://www.australiaawards.gov.au/index.html

The Australia Awards are comprised of two streams: an achievement stream that targets the best and brightest students, researchers and professionals to come to Australia and for Australians to do the same offshore; and a development stream that builds capacity in developing countries.

Achievement stream

Endeavour Awards – Australian applicants
The Australian Government provides opportunities for high achieving Australian students, researchers and professionals to undertake study, research and professional development in a broad range of disciplines in participating countries in the Asia-Pacific, Americas, Europe and Middle East. Applications open on 5th April and close on 31st July 2010, for study in 2011.

Endeavour Awards – International applicants
The Australian Government provides opportunities for high achieving international students, researchers and professionals to undertake short or long term study, research and professional development in Australia in a broad range of disciplines.

Development stream

Australian Development Scholarships:  Up to 1000 Australian Development Scholarships are awarded each year across 31 countries, with scholarships awarded equally between men and women.

Australian Leadership Awards Fellowship:  Applications for round 8 open in May and close 5-6 weeks later. http://www.ausaid.gov.au/scholar/alafellow.cfm

Some scholarships require a conditional letter of offer from the University of Sydney, to be included as part of the online application. At present, the processing times indicated by the International Office is that it takes between 6-8 weeks to process a PhD application, so if you know of anyone applying, please encourage them to start early with finding a suitable supervisor using Research Supervisor Connect (http://www.usyd.edu.au/research/opportunities) and completing the postgraduate application form (http://www.usyd.edu.au/internationaloffice/forms/) – the procedure for international students is explained here : http://www.usyd.edu.au/future_students/international_postgraduate_research/admissions/how_to_apply/making_application.shtml

International Science Linkages – Humanities and Creative Arts (ISL-HCA) Programme

Following a very successful first grant round, the Australian Academy of the Humanities is now pleased to call for applications for the second round of the International Science Linkages – Humanities and Creative Arts (ISL-HCA) Programme, funded by the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research (DIISR) to support international collaborative research activities in the humanities and creative arts.

The International Science Linkages (ISL) Programme aims to facilitate and support research cooperation between Australian researchers and leading counterparts overseas. The ISL-HCA Programme will provide targeted support in order to:

* promote access and participation for Australian humanities and creative arts researchers in strategically focused, leading edge, international research; and
* increase strategic alliances between Australian and overseas researchers.

The closing date for this second round is Monday 8 February 2010.

In this second round three different schemes are being offered:

1. International Research Fellowships for early to mid-career researchers to work in collaborative research groups abroad;

2. Visiting Fellowships for eminent humanities and/or creative arts scholars to visit Australia and participate in seminars and masterclasses; and

3. International Collaborative Workshops with a focused objective, which bring together researchers from different countries and may be hosted in Australia or overseas.

To lodge your application you will need to obtain the Guidelines, the appropriate Application Form and the Cover Sheet. Please read the Guidelines carefully before filling out and lodging your application. You can find these documents on the AAH ISL web page: http://www.humanities.org.au/ISL.html
