Our Australian alumni

There are over 100,000 Australian alumni in Vietnam, including over 6,500 Australia Awards recipients.

Alumni are Vietnamese people who studied, researched, or trained at Australian education institutions (in Australia or another country), including long and short courses, online or face to face. Alumni may be scholarship recipients or self-funded.

Vietnamese alumni of Australian education in Vietnam have a wealth of knowledge, expertise and influence, and are making valuable contributions to Vietnam’s development. They are also strengthening linkages between Vietnam and Australia.

Australian Alumni Grants Fund

Australian alumni in Vietnam can access grants for professional and community projects under the Australian Alumni Grants Fund.

The Australian Alumni Grants Fund (AAGF) managed by Aus4Skills provides funding for successful proposals from Vietnamese alumni of Australian education to consolidate their professional knowledge and skills; contribute to organisational change in selected Vietnamese government, private sector, civil organisations and other partners; and strengthen linkages between Australia and Vietnam.

Since 2017, six grant rounds have supported Australian alumni to deliver projects in targeted areas across Vietnam.

Applications for AAGF Round 7 open from 20 February and close at midnight 1 April 2024.
