Inclusion

The Australian Government values contributions from all people in Mongolia. It seeks equity and participation by men, women, people with disabilities and people living in provinces.

Applications for Australia Awards are encouraged from all suitably-qualified individuals in the priority areas and who meet eligibility requirements.

In 2018, eligibility requirements for applicants with declared and verified disabilities have changed to try to attract more applications from this group. The changes for 2018 are:

  • English language requirements
    Applicants with declared and verified disabilities will be considered eligible if they have an IELTS (Academic) overall score of 5.0, with 5.0 in the Reading and Writing bands. Band scores in Listening and Speaking can be less than 5.0
  • Work experience requirements
    Applicants with declared and verified disabilities will be considered eligible if they do not have two years’ work experience leading into 1 February 2018.

Applicants with disabilities are encouraged to contact the Australia awards Mongolia office for more information, or if they require assistance in completing their applications.

They are also encouraged to contact a disability support organisation with special support services for their disabilities, for additional support. These organisations can liaise with the Australia Awards Mongolia office to arrange reasonable accommodations to support applicants with disabilities during the application process (and selection stages)

The Australia Awards Mongolia team will liaise with disability support organisations to conduct information sessions for applicants with disabilities. These sessions will explain the application and selection processes and explain supports available to applicants during the application and selection stages and if they are nominated for an Australia awards Scholarship.
