Who we are

Australia Awards and Alumni Engagement Program - Philippines

The Australia Awards and Alumni Engagement Program-Philippines (AAAEP-P) is designed to provide a suite of learning opportunities to Filipinos, which includes Australia Awards scholarships and short courses, local scholarships, and non-formal learning opportunities. By offering flexible and strategic combinations of these educational tools, AAAEP-P supports and complements the capacity building initiatives of select Philippine organisations that directly contribute to the shared development goals of the Australian Government and Philippine Government.

The program also engages with the Filipino alumni of Australian educational institutions or Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), nurturing the connections and relationships that these exceptional Filipinos have with Australia.

Background

One of the long-standing components of Australia's aid to the Philippines is development scholarships. Since the 1950s, the Australian Government has provided study and research opportunities to around 3,500 Filipinos with the aim of enabling these individuals to drive change and contribute to Philippine development outcomes.

Today, the Australian Government continues to provide educational opportunities to Filipino change-makers through the Australia Awards and Alumni Engagement Program - Philippines (AAAEP-P).
