[Australia] Carnegie Mellon University-AusAID Scholarships

Carnegie Mellon University-AusAID (CMU-AusAID) Scholarships are funded by the Australian Government to support a limited number of students from countries where Australia has a bilateral aid program, to undertake a Masters degree at the H. John Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management at Carnegie Mellon University's campus in Adelaide, Australia.

CMU-AusAID Scholarships are only available to students who have already been offered a place at Carnegie-Mellon University in either of the two courses available under this program.

For information about Carnegie Mellon University Australia (Adelaide Campus) and to apply for a place at Carnegie Mellon University Australia in one of the courses for which a Carnegie Mellon University-AusAID Scholarship may be available, refer to the Carnegie Mellon University-Australia website.

Objectives of the CMU-AusAID Scholarships

CMU-AusAID Scholarships aim to strengthen human resource capacity in partner countries in public policy, management and information technology. CMU-AusAID Scholarships enable individuals from partner countries to gain high-level skills and knowledge in these areas, so that they can contribute to the economic and social development of their home countries. Therefore, scholarship holders are expected to return to their country of citizenship at the completion of their scholarship for a minimum period of two years in order to contribute to the development of their country.
