Australia Awards Scholarships – Applications Now Open
The Australia Awards Scholarship program is offered through the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and provides the opportunity for people from developing countries to undertake full-time study at participating Australian training providers.
“Aviation Australia is honoured to be one of the few Vocational and Educational Training (VET) providers participating in the Australia Awards Scholarship program. We have received a number of high quality students through the program over the past few years,” said Mark Thompson, Technical Training Manager at Aviation Australia.
Our last recipient, Royce Detabene from Nauru, was awarded a scholarship and commenced his Diploma of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering – B1.1 Mechanical course in 2018.
“I applied for the Australia Award Scholarship program because I developed an innate passion to become an aircraft maintenance engineer. My family could not afford to fund my tuition fee on top of the cost of living expenses, so I found this scholarship and was lucky enough to get it,” shared Royce Detabene.
Royce was inspired to apply for the scholarship through Aviation Australia after hearing of many successful engineering graduate stories.
“Most of the scholarship graduates are now working within the aviation industry in their home country and are great ambassadors for Aviation Australia and the Australia Awards Scholarship program,” shared Mark Thompson.
Application are now open and close 30 April 2019.
