Australia Awards 


Under the Australia-France Roadmap, signed by Foreign Minister Wong and Foreign Minister Colonna in December 2023, the Australian Government is proud to announce the return of the prestigious Australia Awards Scholarships in New Caledonia and French Polynesia.

Australia Awards scholarships are prestigious international awards offered by the Australian Government to the next generation of global leaders. Through study and research, recipients develop the skills and knowledge to drive change and build enduring people-to-people links with Australia.

The Australia Awards scholarship program will open to five New Caledonians and French Polynesians each year, to pursue postgraduate study in Australia. The program is also available in Wallis-and-Futuna (for undergraduate studies).

The Australia Awards 2025 intake is now closed. Please check this page for next year’s campaign (2026 Intake) and follow us on Facebook.

Recipients will be required to enter into a contract with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to comply with conditions of the scholarship. This includes returning to their home at the end of the scholarship.

Interested candidates are encouraged to visit Australia Awards tabs below for detailed information for each French Pacific Collectivity, including respective application process:
