The Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) manages the overseas aid programme of the Australian government. The aim of the programme is to help developing countries reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development, in line with Australia's national interest. Australia's aid programme focuses on the Asia Pacific region, reflecting the country's leading role in the region. In 2008 it announced a new strategy intended to provide increased support for development research in order to increase the effectiveness of Australia's aid programme. The full details can be found in AusAID Development Research Strategy 2008-2010.

Fellows are citizens of the South; associate fellows are citizens of the North who were born in the South or have made significant contributions to science in the South.
