Australia Awards returns as a CAUSINDY sponsor

Australia Awards logoCAUSINDY is pleased to announce that the Australia Awards, a prestigious international scholarship program funded by the Australian government, will be supporting the conference again as a Sponsor in 2015.

The Australia Awards offers the next generation of global leaders an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development in Australia. The program aims to contribute to the long term development needs of Australia’s partner countries, in line with bilateral and regional agreements.

In 2013-2014, the Australian government invested $362.2 million in Australia Awards, enabling 4450 new recipients from more than 117 eligible developing countries to undertake study, research and professional development at Australian universities. The government has been supporting international scholarships for 60 years, beginning with the Colombo Plan in the 1950s. Since then, more than 100,000 people have benefited from these scholarships.

CAUSINDY is proud to partner with an organisation that has such a strong involvement in developing person-to-person links between Australia and Asia and is excited to welcome the Australia Awards Delegates to the conference.
