Australia Awards


Australia Awards are prestigious international scholarships and fellowships funded by the Australian Government. The Awards offer the next generation of global leaders an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development.

As the only public university in Queensland to earn five stars for teaching quality in the Good Universities Guide every year since 2007, USC is a great place to study for Australia Awards recipients. Over the years, USC has been privileged to host awardees from around the world and we look forward to welcoming you.

Australia Awards applications are managed through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Department of Education and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research. You will need to apply directly to the relevant program, which will then pass on your application to USC.

Eligibility requirements and application processes vary throughout the Australia Awards programs. Please visit the Australia Awards website for detailed information about the eligibility criteria and selection process for each program currently on offer.

Applicants must meet the eligibility criteria of the specific scholarship to which they are applying, including English language requirements.

As you prepare for your arrival at USC, please make yourself familiar with the below information:

  • Airport transfer and initial accommodation
  • Money matters
  • Introductory Academic Program
  • Bringing family to Australia

Current Australia Awards students should discuss any questions regarding their studies at USC with their course coordinators, supervisors and/or Program Advisers at Student Central.

Any questions related to your Australia Awards scholarship can be directed to the Australia Awards Student Contact Officer.

Awardees must also make themselves familiar with the current Australia Awards Handbook. Please consult the handbook regarding your enquiry prior to making an appointment with the Student Contact Officer.
