Alumni Engagement


Our Australian alumni


There are over 80,000 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.


Networking and professional development 


Alumni can also join six Alumni Professional Groups, which can be found through the Australian Alumni in Vietnam Facebook page. The Alumni Professional Groups provide access to events and activities relevant to particular interests and expertise. 

  1. Economics and Business
  2. Agriculture
  3. Legal and Justice
  4. Gender
  5. Education and Research
  6. Disability Inclusion


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


Two AAGF rounds are scheduled for 2023, with the following opening dates: 10 February, Round 5; and (tentative) 10 August, Round 6.


In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Australia – Vietnam diplomatic relations, grant applications this year in all priority areas/sectors are encouraged to contribute to strengthening linkages between the two countries.
