Australia Awards alumni are current and future leaders, influencers and change-makers.

Globally, alumni of Australia’s education institutions are highly talented, mobile, and equipped with skills and knowledge made possible by their Australian qualifications.

All recipients of Australia Awards become part of the Australia Global Alumni network, connecting them to Australia and to each other – building an engaged and influential global network of leaders and advocates, and establishing a network of ambassadors for Australia and its first-class education system.

In South and West Asia, there are more than 4,000 Australia Awards alumni, with strong alumni communities across Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka that actively engage with, develop linkages with and promote Australia.

Alumni engagement activities are organised across the region throughout the calendar year.
