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.

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.
