250 scholarships from the Australian Agency for International Development will be presented to Vietnamese citizens for their postgraduate studies in Australia which commence in 2013.

The Australian Development scholarships aim to increase the capacity and leadership skills of students so they contribute more to the country’s development.

Leading academics, central and local government officials and people engaged in development issues, especially those from disadvantaged areas, ethnic minorities and Vietnam ’s disabled community are being encouraged to apply to this scholarship.
The successful applicants will join a well established network of 4,000 Vietnamese alumni who have studied in Australia through Australian Government scholarships over the last 30 years, including well-known academics and business leaders./.
