Alumni Events

Various alumni activities are held during the year, providing opportunities for alumni to showcase their new skills and knowledge, build on their existing skills through professional development opportunities and to continue grow their professional and social networks.

Check out our new short course for Women and Work in Timor-Leste. The 4-day program starting in August 2018 will be delivered by experts from Monash University.

Our popular Alumni Showcase Series continues with two new events planned in early September and mid October. The events are designed to promote information sharing and facilitate collaborative action by:
• Presenting, discussing and analysing new research that aims to contribute to the development of Timor-Leste;
• Providing a facilitated forum bringing together relevant organisations and individuals from the NGO, private and public sectors and
• Creating an opportunity to develop influential networks and ideas for further action.

The next Alumni Showcase will be held in September and is set to have a focus on the environment. To register your interest in attending please contact the scholarships team via scholarships@australiaawardstimorleste.org
