Applications for the next round of the Australia Awards – Africa Alumni Small Grants (Round 3 – 2019) opened on 01 June 2018. The grants are for implementation in 2019.

Kindly note that Round 3 will once again, provide funding to Alumni groups under the following two categories:

  • Development Projects of Alumni groups / Alumni Communities of Practice

Under this category, the Grant Scheme provides funding to assist groups of members or communities of practice to carry out activities that have a clear intended development benefit linked to the development objectives of their home country or region. The Small Grants will not be awarded to individual Alumni. 

  • Continued Professional Development (CPD) activities of Alumni Associations

This category is aimed at assisting Alumni Associations to improve their benefit proposition to their members by offering opportunities for Continued Professional Development (CPD) activities. The grant funds a once-off professional development/training activity which benefits all Alumni Association members. These training programs should be in cohesion with those of Australia Awards – Africa’s Alumni Engagement Strategy and agreed within the Alumni governance committee of an Alumni Association..
