Alumni Grants Manager – Australia Awards in Indonesia

The goal of Australia Awards in Indonesia (AAI) is to enhance Indonesia’s development through the contribution of internationally qualified professionals and a strong and positive relationship with Australia.

Key to the success of AAI is engagement with Indonesian alumni of Australian higher education institutions. AAI is supporting the Australian Embassy in Jakarta with the development and implementation of a five-year enhanced alumni engagement strategy for Indonesia. This strategy moves beyond previous efforts to solely engage recipients of Australia Awards scholarships to also include those alumni who self-funded their study, short course award participants, and recipients of Government of Indonesia scholarships.

The purpose of the strategy is to enable Australian whole-of-government engagement with alumni who can provide long-term support for Australian business, trade, development cooperation and promote Australian excellence as a global education provider.
