Recipients with Disabilities

The Australian Government is committed to equal and fair opportunities for all. The Australian Awards Scholarships aim, where ever possible, to implement appropriate measures to make the program inclusive, accessible and fair for all.

The Australian Government's “Development for All” strategy makes a clear commitment to provide access to the aid program, including to the Australia Awards, for persons with disability.

Based on individual assessment the Australia Awards have a number of mechanisms in place to ensure adequate support at application, pre-departure and during your studies in Australia.

Applicants with a disability are eligible for additional financial and technical support to enable them to participate in the Awards on an equal basis with other recipients.
