Australia: APS Scholarships
The Australian Partnership Scholarships (APS) is an initiative from the Australia Indonesia Partnership for Reconstruction and Development (AIPRD) and is funded by the Australian government for postgraduate study for Indonesian students in Australian universities.
APS is a different scholarship program to the Australian Development Scholarship program (ADS).
The objective of the scholarship program is to increase the human resource capacity of Indonesia in the areas of Economic Governance, Public Sector Management and Education. The scholarship program is an important component of the on-going development cooperation between Indonesia and Australia. After the earthquake and tsunami in Aceh and North Sumatera, the Australian Government has increased its commitment to supporting development in Indonesia.
The Australian Partnership Scholarships Program funds Indonesians for higher degree (post graduate) study in Australia through a joint selection process overseen by the Government of Australia and the Government of Indonesia and consistent with mutually agreed general policy objectives.
The APS Program is managed through the APS Project Office in Jakarta, to ensure efficient and effective administration of the program.
