Australia Awards provide educational, research and professional development opportunities to support growth in the region and to develop enduring links between Australia and our neighbours. Scholarships, delivered through the Mongolia-Australia Scholarships Program, are a priority for Australia's development cooperation program in Mongolia.

The program provides post-graduate scholarships to Mongolian professionals from the public, private and civil society sectors to gain qualifications that contribute to the development of Mongolia in line with Mongolia's National Development Strategy. Since 1993-94, Australia has provided over 530 scholarships to Mongolia. Graduates return with knowledge, skills and experience to help develop the economic sectors of priority to Mongolia, and to enhance the opportunities for knowledge-sharing and institutional linkages between Australia and Mongolia.

The program also places an emphasis on women in leadership by offering short courses on professional development and leadership for alumni, with a focus on women, to enable them to compete successfully for leadership positions.

The Australia Awards program is the longest-standing Australian aid program to Mongolia and is highly regarded–producing graduates with advanced capabilities and ongoing linkages with Australia. Alumni of the program, who are known as 'Mozzies', have made important contributions to Mongolia's development.

Australia will provide 37 Mongolian postgraduate scholarships to commence study under Australia Awards in 2018-19.
