Tertiary education scholarships for individuals from developing countries to study in Australia are a core component of Australia’s development policy. In 2020, prestigious Australia Awards Scholarships (AAS) are being offered to 1,985 individuals from 50 countries, at a cost of $280 million. Administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, as an aspect of Australian foreign policy’s focus on soft power, the aim of the AAS is to contribute to the socio-economic development of these countries through learning and skills development. How have AAS students in Australia been faring since COVID-19 border closures and social isolation measures were put in place?
