Australia Awards in Nepal


Through the Australia Awards initiative, Australia provides scholarships for Nepalese students, researchers and professionals to study in Australia. The Awards are an important part of the aid program in Nepal and aim to:

  • develop capacity and leadership skills so that individuals can contribute to development in Nepal
  • build people-to-people linkages between Nepal and Australia.

Nepalese nationals are eligible for long-term Awards (Australia Awards Scholarships and the Australia Awards Leadership Program) and short-term Awards (including Australia Awards Fellowships).
