When lodging applications, applicants must:
- Meet all general Australia Awards and Mongolia-specific eligibility criteria. For details on these criteria read the Australia Awards Scholarships Policy Handbook and the Country Profile.
- Have a valid English language proficiency certificate. Applicants living and working in Ulaanbaatar, require an IELTS (Academic) score of at least 5.5 with no band score less than 5.0 (or TOEFL equivalent). Applicants living and working in provinces require an IELTS (Academic) score of at least 5.0 with band scores in Reading and Writing at least less than 5.0 (or TOEFL equivalent).
- Upload all required documents with their applications. For details about required documents (and those to be notarized and translated into English) read the Country Profile.
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 2017 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.
