Australia’s development assistance program in Cambodia aims to contribute to greater prosperity and to reduce poverty. As outlined in the Australian Government’s 2015-18 Aid Investment Plan for Cambodia, our development assistance will prioritise three key objectives:
(i) improving access to infrastructure;
(ii) increasing agricultural productivity and farmer incomes; and
(iii) promoting better health and education outcomes.
Australia Awards Scholarships fall under objective (iii). Through Australia Awards Scholarships, we are providing education opportunities to talented Cambodians at the postgraduate level to contribute to Cambodia’s human resource development. Australia Awards Scholarships are prestigious international awards offered by the Australian Government to the next generation of global leaders. Through study and research, recipients develop the skills and knowledge to drive change and help build enduring people-to-people links with Australia. Applicants will be assessed for their professional and personal qualities, academic competence and, most importantly, their potential to impact on development challenges in Cambodia.
