Alumni Navigation Background

Alumni Grant Scheme

The Australian Alumni COVID-19 Response Grants Scheme provides opportunity for alumni to help respond to the emerging needs and challenges brought by the COVID-19 crisis.

The program features two categories: a development stream, which allows alumni to implement projects to help those who need it most; and a research stream that will allow alumni to contribute to the limited body of knowledge and literature on COVID-19. These are platforms for Australia Global Alumni and AAAEP-P program participants to be changemakers in their organisation and communities during this challenging time.

Application for the 2021 Australian Alumni COVID-19 Response Grants Scheme is now closed.
