Alumni Grant Scheme Recipients Announced!

Winners of the latest Alumni Grant Scheme round were announced at the Alumni Gala Dinner on Saturday 18 March. Twenty-five projects were selected from over 260 entries (please see list below).

The Alumni Grant Scheme (AGS) aims to strengthen Australia-Indonesia linkages and encourage alumni to further leverage their Australian-earnt expertise to put ideas into action to create meaningful change. It is available for all Australian alumni – it is not just limited to Australia Awards alumni. It allows individuals or groups of alumni to access grant funding to enhance Indonesia’s development and build strong and positive relationships with Australia. The scheme offers seed funding, on a competitive basis, for initiatives that create impact in an alumnus’ professional field, organisation and community. It aims to contribute to capacity building, knowledge sharing and development activities among the large base of Australian alumni here in Indonesia.

Successful grantees have been awarded up to AUD15,000 respectively to implement their projects. Many of the projects proposed include co-financing from other organisations as well as linkages to Australian institutions, and strong commitments to support gender equality and women’s empowerment and improve quality of life for people with a disability. We were pleased to receive a broad range of project proposals selected, which cut across various sectors and are to be implemented all over Indonesia.

The next AGS round will open in April 2017, and please visit here to find out more about the program.
