Alumni overview

Australia Awards – Africa Alumni places a high importance on staying connected with our Awardees and Alumni. We have designed several activities to keep you connected and to follow and support you on-award and on-return when you enter the Alumni phase of your award.

We also value our partners, and the links established through their participation in the delivery of the awards.
