Australia Awards Global Tracer Facility Case Study: Bangladesh, Economic Development
This report has been developed based on interviews with seven alumni and various stakeholders to examine the long-term outcomes of Australia Awards alumni working within the Bangladesh Civil Service, with a focus on the Ministry of Finance. The alumni featured in this case study undertook scholarships and fellowships in Australia in studies relating to economic development, and graduated between 2011 and 2016. This research was conducted by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s (DFAT) Australia Awards Global Tracer Facility (the Facility) in December 2019.
The overall aim of the Australia Awards is to help ‘partner countries progress their development goals and have positive relationships with Australia that advance mutual interests’. This aim is extrapolated in four long-term outcomes for the Australia Awards, which form the basis of the findings for the alumni from this case study.
