Seeking Potential Host Organizations for the Australia Awards Cambodia Disability Internship Program
Australia Awards Scholarships recognize the importance of the contribution made by Cambodians with a disability in the community, civil society, non-government and government. The Australian Government is committed to ensuring people with disability have the same opportunities to benefit equally from Australia’s development Program.
Australia Awards Scholarships are fully funded scholarship opportunities for Cambodians to study at Australian Universities. Most awards are provided for study at Masters level and in exceptional cases, PhDs.
The pool of potential applicants for Australia Awards with a disability who meet eligibility requirements is very low, compared to able-applicants. Our goal is to increase the number of people with disabilities who are eligible to apply for and who are ultimately offered an Australia Award scholarship.
Internship Host Organization Requirements
Organizations must meet following eligibility criteria:
• Able to offer 24 month internship for a person with a disability in meaningful skilled work role/s that matches the intern’s and the organizational needs
• Able to make a financial (preferably) and/or ‘in-kind’ contribution to the internship in addition to Australia Awards financial contribution
• Provide a workplace where the dominant language of work is/can become English over the period of the internship (or if not then can demonstrate how English language acquisition will be able to be supported in the workplace).
