Australia Awards - Africa Alumni Small Grants (Round 3 - 2019) - Applications now open!


Applications are invited from Alumni groups in the following categories for Round 3 of the Australia Awards - Africa Alumni Small Grants for projects worth between AUD5,000 and AUD10,000 to be implemented in 2019.


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.


Note: Privately-funded Alumni can be part of the development groups (assisting with implementation), however grants are not available directly to self-funded graduate Alumni members i.e. they cannot be the lead grantees or receive the funds directly as project leads etc. They should partner with Australia Awards Alumni who must act as the lead implementer. 


All applications must be completed and submitted online by 31 July 2018, COB (17:00 – South Africa).  The link to the online application form is
