Australia Awards places a high importance on staying connected with its scholars and alumni. We have designed several activities to support and connect with individuals during their scholarship and when they return home.

Australia Awards also values its partners and the linkages established through their participation in the delivery of the program. Stay connected with the ever-expanding Australia Awards ‘family’. Through this site, African scholars, Australia Awards alumni, privately funded alumni and alumni from other Australian scholarship programs Australia are encouraged to register and update their details on our Alumni Portal and explore the information on this site.
