Alumni contributions to COVID-19 response

This case study by the Australia Awards Global Tracer Facility (GTF) explores the extent to which alumni of Australian development scholarships are contributing to the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It provides the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) with a unique snapshot into the type of contributions Australia Awards alumni are making globally during the first 12 months of the pandemic. The report examines findings from eight in-depth interviews and data collected from thousands of alumni as part of the annual Global Tracer Survey in 2020, to showcase the different ways Australia Awards alumni from a range of sectors are using their skills, knowledge and networks developed on award in Australia to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
