2012 Australian Leadership Awards Fellowships | 2012 Australian Government Scholarships

Australian Leadership Awards (ALA) Fellowships/Scholarships aim to develop leadership, address priority regional development issues, and build partnerships and linkages between Australian organisations and partner organisations in developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region, Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and the Middle East.

The ALA Fellowships program engages with a wide cross-section of the Australian community on aid delivery issues and priorities for development. Through ALA Fellowships, Australian organisations have the opportunity to build and strengthen links with organisations in developing countries by offering professional development opportunities in Australia.

The goal of the ALA Fellowships program is to develop appropriately trained current and aspiring leaders in priority areas, who, in the short to medium term, will be in a position to advance key regional policy objectives and increase institutional capacity of partner countries. ALA Fellowships are designed to complement individual bilateral country programs by offering flexible fellowship placements which address current and emerging needs at the country, sub-regional and regional levels.

Applications are accepted from Australian organisations only; individuals are not eligible to apply.

ALA Fellowships support a wide variety of areas and sectors. Australian organisations are encouraged to design programs that address priority areas, including disability and development, economic growth, education, environment, food security, gender, governance, health, human rights, infrastructure, regional stability, rural development and water and sanitation

Eligibility
Australian organisations
Applications are restricted to Australian organisations that can demonstrate ongoing linkages with overseas counterpart organisations in eligible countries.

Examples of eligible Australian organisations include NGOs, academic institutions, research organisations, business, industry, media, professional associations and Government agencies.

Overseas counterpart organisations and individual fellows must be sponsored by an Australian organisation, and may not apply directly for an ALA Fellowship. They may, however, initiate contact with an Australian organisation to explore the latter’s interest in applying for Fellowship funding.

Fellows

Prospective fellows identified by Australian organisations must be from an eligible country.

Typically, they will be professionals already in leadership positions or have a potential to assume leadership roles that can influence social and economic policy reform and development outcomes.

Individuals cannot apply for an ALA Fellowship directly. Individuals may be eligible for other Australia Awards.
