General Information Notes
Australian Development Scholarships (ADS) provide opportunities for Indonesians to study in Australia at
POSTGRADUATE level.
Up to four hundred scholarships are expected to be awarded in 2012 for commencement in 2012/2013.
Candidates must undertake study in one of the four areas of development priority (see page 3).
ADS are offered in two main categories: Public Sector Category and Open Category.
Public sector applicants are employees from Government organizations, state universities and state owned
enterprises. Their applications must be approved by training or foreign cooperation bureaus (BKLN) of their local or
central agencies before being submitted to the ADS Program Office. Public sector candidates from government
agencies outside J akarta may apply directly to the ADS Program Office with the approval of their relevant Kakanwil or
Kadinas. Calon Pegawai Negeri Sipil are not eligible to appl y.
Open Category applicants are from private organisations and universities and this category is also open to recent
university graduates. No prior Government approval is required for people applying in the Open Category, and
applications are to be submitted directly to the Australia Awards Office. They require, where relevant, the
endorsement of the agency, institution or private university in which the applicant is working or studying. Applications
are submitted directly to the Australia Awards Office.
Public servants (Pegawai Negeri) cannot appl y in the Open category.
A third category (Targeted) exists for candidates who are identified by their organisations in consultation with the
ADS Program. Candidates within this category must be identified by their home organization and must not apply to
the ADS Program independently of their employer.

scholarship provides up to nine months full-time language and academic preparation in Indonesia. Students must
achieve satisfactory results in this training to be able to continue their scholarships.
