Outcome of Australia Awards Scholarships Intake 2020
Provisional awardees for Australia Awards Scholarships Intake 2020, for long-term study in Australia, have now been notified.
We thank all the 158 shortlisted applicants for taking the time to attend the interview round and tests (STAT-P and IELTS). We appreciate all applicants sharing information about themselves and their academic and career plans with the selection panel. After this highly competitive round, the selection panel collated the results and completed the ranking of all applicants. For Intake 2020, there are 90 provisional awardees.
Significant factors in the panel’s deliberations included:
- the applicant’s level of preparedness;
- well-defined study, career and reintegration plans; and
- the ability to express these plans clearly and concisely to the panel.
Some shortlisted applicants failed to obtain the required IELTS score and were automatically disqualified.
We encourage all unsuccessful applicants to consider applying again for Intake 2021, which will open on 1 February 2020 and will be advertised on this website.
