The Australia Awards Scholarships are administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. They provide opportunities for people from developing countries, particularly those countries located in the Indo-Pacific region, to undertake full time undergraduate or postgraduate study at participating Australian universities and TAFE institutions. Carnegie Mellon University Australia programs, Master of Science in Public Policy and Management (MSPPM) and Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) are both eligible and suited for the Award. Carnegie Mellon University Australia has received many Australia Awardees into both programs.

Scholarship recipients will gain knowledge and skills that they can apply to the development of their home country upon completion of their study. Scholarships include full tuition, return economy airfares, a contribution to living expenses and basic medical insurance.

Applicants are encouraged to visit the Australia Awards website for more information on the participating countries, and opening and closing dates for applications.
