About the Network

While sponsored students experience many of the same challenges as other students across the student lifecycle, they often have unique requirements and obligations. Understanding the needs of these distinct student cohorts helps international education practitioners expand the opportunities and manage the expectations of funding organisations, and recipients alike.

There are many organisations which provide funding for both in-bound and out-bound scholarships and fellowships, and they play an important role in the Australian international education sector. Effective management of the relevant relationships is crucial.

IEAA's Scholarships and Fellowships Network provides a platform for practitioners to identify, discuss and disseminate issues of concern, showcase best practice and innovative solutions, as well as developing the specialised skills of international education practitioners whose work involves scholarships and fellowships.

The network aims to:

  • Foster a networking and information sharing group to discuss scholarship management, strategy and marketing.
  • Recognise and develop the specialised skills in managing the myriad stakeholders involved in sponsored student management through professional development activities.
  • Provide a resource and information source for staff working with sponsors and sponsored students.

Network Conveners

Network Conveners represent professionals across each of the IEAA Networks and are responsible for setting the agenda for network focussed events, research and insights and identifying relevant topics and speakers for the Australian International Education Conference (AIEC).
