Australia Awards Global Tracer Facility Case Study: Costa Rica Case Study, Environment and Agriculture
This report has been developed based on interviews with nine alumni and various stakeholders to examine the long-term outcomes of Australia Awards scholarship alumni from Costa Rica. The alumni of focus for this Case Study undertook scholarships in Australia in studies relating to environment and agriculture, and graduated between 2013 and 2016. This research was conducted by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s (DFAT) Australia Awards Global Tracer Facility (the Facility) in July and August 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.
