Current Scholars & AAA Alumni at the 70th Anniversary Benefit Dinner, 2018.

The Education Program 


The American Australian Association established its Graduate Education Scholarship Fund in 2002 to provide much needed financial support and assistance to American and Australian graduates seeking to undertake study and research in each other’s countries.  With more than 300 scholar alumni and US $8 million invested to date, the Association is committed to helping advance graduate education, in order to enable our countries most valuable resource – human capital – to unlock creative new solutions to global challenges and improve the quality of life for all citizens.  Many of our scholars have gone on to become influencers and thought leaders in their fields across the world - working in the government, the private sector and nonprofit organizations.
We are proud to have built an alumni network of scholars’ eager to continue to deepen and strengthen the American-Australian relationship through educational and intellectual exchange.
