In 2009 the Anne Wexler Master’s scholarship was created by the Australian government to assist in the development of the Australian-American relationship. The award was established to aid in ongoing policy exchange between the two countries.
If you are an Australian citizen wanting to undertake research or study in the US, or a US citizen wanting to study or perform research in Australia, the Anne Wexler Master’s scholarship might be able to assist you with funding your studies. Individuals applying for this award can be from multiple areas of study as long as it correlates with Anne Wexler’s interest in a bi-national focus in the field of public policy. A few possible areas of study include health, sustainability, energy, climate change, regional security, history and governmental relations. This scholarship is awarded to two individuals annually and each award is valued at AUD 140,000. The award benefits include the following:
- Annual stipend of up to AUD 30,000
- Tuition fees up to AUD 27,000
- Travel allowance up to AUD 6,000
