Australia Awards in Indonesia

The Australia Awards are prestigious, transformational scholarships and short courses offered to emerging leaders for study, research and professional development in Australia

Australian Alumni Grants

Australian Alumni Grants foster Australia's active alumni community in Indonesia and support ongoing personal and professional development for Australian alumni. 

Grants are provided for discrete activities that support alumni to: 

  • apply new knowledge and skills within their organisations and professions
  • strengthen and leverage their networks
  • take up leadership opportunities and empower others to lead
  • strengthen their connections with Australia
  • collaborate with one another 

Grant Features

  • Three application rounds per year
  • Preference to grant proposals in the range of AUD 3,000 - 10,000
  • Funds to be provided as an advance, as reimbursement for expenses paid, or as payments directly to service providers.


All Australian alumni in Indonesia are eligible to apply. This includes those who have graduated from an Australian education institution, completed a short-term tertiary course, or participated in an Australian government-hosted program.

Indicative Activities

Australian Alumni Grants are intended to support discrete activities, not complex projects with multiple inputs. Activities are specific tasks that will have an immediate impact on specific outcomes. Indicative activities include:  

  • Delivering or attending training, workshops and seminars.
  • Personal or professional development courses.
  • Activities that form part of AAI short course award projects.
  • Capacity building, mentoring or coaching.
  • Academic research and research-related activities.
  • R&D and innovation.
  • Knowledge and technology transfer.
  • Professional networking events and programs.
  • Public awareness campaigns.
  • Organisational or institutional strengthening.

Grant-funded activities should be undertaken within three months of the awarding of the grant with a clearly identified activity completion milestone.
