Self-assessment tool

Applying for an Australia Awards Scholarship is a lengthy process. It is a waste of time to complete an application only to find out later that you are not eligible.

When 2019 applications open, applicants should complete the self-assessment eligibility tool to decide at the start of the exercise whether they are eligible.

Once applicants are certain they are eligible, then they can start considering an application in detail.
