Australia Awards Alumni Network

On graduating, all Australia Awards Scholars automatically become members of the global alumni network.

This network provides a mechanism for Australia Awards alumni to build and maintain supportive relationships with other alumni through professional and social links.

If you are an Australia Awards alumnus – Scholarship or Fellowship – we want to stay in touch with you.

Please send an email to and let us know your current contact details so we can include you in our activities.

You can find out how alumni have been contributing to Timor-Leste’s development since 2000 by watching this short film celebrating 17 years of the Australia Awards in Timor-Leste.

    Alumni networking activities include:

    • Welcome Back Reception hosted by the Australian Ambassador
    • Alumni workshops, PhD Showcases and seminars – formal and informal – to provide opportunities to have thematic discussions led by alumni, including participation from Timor-Leste Government agencies, private sector and development partners

    An alumni small grants fund is available to support alumni who would like to pursue professional development and leadership activities and to remain connected with Australia.

    Timor-Leste – Australia Alumni Association

    A new Timor-Leste Australia Alumni Association (TL3A) Board is in place supported by Alumni Secretariat Co-ordinator (ASC), Liboria Savio, an Australia Awards Alumni with a Masters in Human Resource Management from Murdoch University.

    The new board was elected at a well attended Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 20th January 2018. Members include Alberto Piedade (Chair), Acacio Pinto (Vice-Chair), Carmeneza Dos Santos Monteiro, Samantha Abel and newly returned alumni Joaquim Soriano Viana (Ule).

    The Board and Liboria have hit the ground running and are busy developing a new Alumni Engagement Strategy. Their vision is to encourage alumni to actively participate in the Australia Awards community, to attend events, to volunteer and to create new ways for alumni to stay connected and contribute to the development of Timor-Leste.

    If you would like further information or to get involved please contact Liboria via or drop in to see her at the Alumni Secretariat’s office next to WDPTL office at Rua de Be-Mori (Antiga Rua de Belarmino Lobo, Bidau Akadiru-Hun, Dili, Timor-Leste.
