The Australian Embassy Call for Applications for Alumni Grant Scheme (AGS)

Deadline: 27 January 2017

The Australian Embassy is seeking applications for its Alumni Grant Scheme (AGS) with an aim to strengthen Australia-Indonesia linkages and encourage alumni to further leverage their Australian-earnt expertise to put ideas into action to create meaningful change.

The AGS offers seed funding, on a competitive basis, for initiatives that create impact in applicant’s professional field, organisation and community.

Objectives

  • to provide alumni with opportunities to enhance and capitalise on their knowledge and skills to improve practice in their professional fields and communities;
  • to develop, maintain and strengthen professional linkages and partnerships between alumni and the Australian government, and Australian businesses, organisations and educational institutions;
  • to connect alumni to each other across disciplines and professions, organisations and institutions, and geographic areas in order to share good practice and create opportunities for collaboration; to develop a network of alumni who view Australia’s capabilities and credentials in a positive light;
  • to showcase Australia’s excellence as a global provider of high quality education and research.

Grant Categories

Up to 25 grants are available under the current AGS round.

Category 1: Project Grant

  • The Project Grant provides up to AUD 10,000 for alumni to undertake their initiative. Additional funding (up to $5,000) is available for proposals that partner with an Australian organization or secure funding from alternate sources:
    • while the AGS is about utilizing alumni skills and knowledge, we also want alumni to maintain and build their links to Australia. If applicant’s project is in partnership with an Australian organization or institution; applicants may be eligible for an additional AUD 2,000.
    • the AGS provides financial incentives for securing alternate funding sources to support project delivery. The AGS will provide alumni with an additional 50% of a third party contribution, to a maximum of AUD 3,000.
  • Thus the overall budget for an AGS project grant can be up to AUD $15,000.

Category 2: Follow-on Grant

  • The Follow-on Grant is intended to scale-up or conduct follow-up activities of an AGS project. If alumni were previously awarded an AGS, and they wish to continue delivering applicant’s project, they may also apply for a grant of up to AUD 10,000.
  • Note: Applicants will need to clearly demonstrate that their current project is achieving the objectives stated in the original proposal, if they wish to apply for a Follow-on Grant.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The AGS is open to all Indonesian nationals who have graduated from a recognized Australian tertiary institution, including recipients of Australian Government scholarships, Government of Indonesia scholarship recipients, and private fee-paying students.
  • The AGS is also open to all Indonesian nationals who have completed short-term tertiary courses at registered Australian institutions through Australia Awards Fellowships and Short Courses and the Department of Immigration, Customs and Border Control ELICOS program. Indonesian nationals who have participated in Australian government hosted programs are also eligible to apply.
  • The Australian Embassy has a strong commitment to supporting women and people with a disability and strongly encourages these alumni to apply. Applicants from Geographic Focus Areas are also encouraged to apply.
