Swinburne has been involved in the Australia Awards scholarship program for over 15 years. Currently, there are more than 30 Australia Award students enrolled at the university.

The Australia Awards are scholarships funded by the Australian Government that aim to promote knowledge, education links and enduring ties between Australia and its neighbours.

They provide opportunities for people from eligible countries to undertake full time undergraduate, postgraduate or TAFE study at Swinburne.


Applicants who want to accept an Australia Awards Scholarship will need to sign a contract with the Commonwealth of Australia declaring that they will comply with the conditions of the scholarship. Awardees are required to leave Australia for a minimum of two years after completing their scholarship. Failure to do so will result in the awardee incurring a debt for the total accrued cost of their scholarship. View scholarships conditions for Australia Awards Scholarship.
