Strategic Pillars

The AAA builds and promotes alliances across the Pacific through four established and strategic pillars: business and innovation, education, veterans and arts programs.

Pillar One: Business and Innovation

The American Australian Association and its Business Council, is the preeminent organization for business and government. For over 70 years, the AAA has strengthened the business and innovation relationship between Australia and the United States by promoting dialogue, cooperation, economic growth and cultural understanding.

Pillar Two: Graduate Education

With over 300 scholars and US $8.5 million invested to date, we are committed to advancing our countries’ most valuable resource – human capital – to unlock creative new solutions to global challenges and improve the quality of life for all citizens. The AAA Graduate Education Fund supports scholarships of up to US $40,000 to pursue Masters, PhD and Post-Doctoral research in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Health, Medicine, Journalism and Sustainability.

Pillar Three: Veterans

The AAA is committed to investing in the future of honorably discharged American and Australian veterans by supporting educational opportunities which build new skills and create prosperous post-military careers.

Launched in 2017, on the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea, our AAA Veterans’ Fund provides graduate and undergraduate scholarships of up to $50,000 to American and Australian military veterans, to support one-year of full-time study in any disciplinary field, in the country of the other.

Pillar Four: Arts

Established in the spirit of cross-cultural exchange, the AAA Arts Fund offers early career artists the opportunity to advance in the fields of theatre, film, television, dance, visual arts, design, music, literature, photography and fashion, and to develop their talent with leading mentors and educators.
