Applications for the 2020 Victorian International Education Awards (VIEA) program are now open until 11.59 pm on Friday 13 November 2020.

The Victorian International Education Awards are an initiative of the Victorian Government to support the international education sector and raise awareness of the sector’s benefits to the broader community.

Now more than ever, it’s important we celebrate the change-makers in our communities.

As the pandemic continues to change our lives in innumerable ways, we want to showcase the outstanding students and alumni in our communities along with the many providers working hard to support the international student community.

This year there are Student and Provider Award categories.

Student prizes

Award winners in each category, with the exception of the International Alumnus of the Year, are awarded $6000 and up to two runners-up per category are awarded $2000 each.  All finalists and winners will receive a certificate of recognition.  The recipient of the ‘Premier’s Award – International Student of the Year’ will receive an additional $10,000 to be used for their studies.

All award winners will automatically become part of the Study Melbourne Ambassador program in 2021.

Provider prizes

Award winners are awarded with a trophy and provided with an email signature banner, to include on all their emails promoting that they are a winner in the Victorian International Education Awards.  The recipient of the ‘Premier’s Award – International Provider of the Year’ will receive a trophy and will be recognised as the most outstanding Provider of this Year.
