The Australian Development Scholarships (ADS) program is the official Australian Government scholarship program for overseas students. The program is administered through the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID). The program is available in many developing countries, primarily in Southeast Asia and the Southwest Pacific. The purpose of the ADS is to provide an opportunity for people to gain skills and knowledge which will contribute to the development of their country.

ADS in CambodiaThe ADS program was introduced to Cambodia in 1994 through an agreement with the Council for the Development of Cambodia (CDC) as part of Australia’s larger bilateral development cooperation program. AusAID offers approximately 20 scholarships per year to Government Officials in Cambodia.

When and how to applyThe ADS program is advertised mid-year through advertisements on television, radio and in the newspaper. Application forms are available from IDP Education Australia (IDP) within the Australian Centre for Education (ACE) in Phnom Penh and also in Siem Riep.
Government Officials who meet the selection criteria may seek counselling on study options from an IDP Counsellor. Course information is also available in handbooks and on-line from IDP’s “Study in Australia” resource centre in Phnom Penh.

SelectionAn ADS selection committee assesses applications in several stages, culminating in an interview. Assessment is based on matching applications to criteria, commencing with matching the applications to technical criteria. Language testing (in two stages) is also part of the culling process.
Selection criteria:

  • possession of a Bachelor’s degree
  • maximum age of 42 years
  • demonstration of advanced English language skills (subject to testing)
  • minimum work experience of three years with the RGOC
  • commitment to a return of service obligation of at least twice the scholarship period upon completion of studies, with the relevant Ministry
  • appropriate technical, academic and intellectual capacity
  • a strong commitment to Cambodia’s public sector and the development of Cambodia in general
