Welcome to the Papua New Guinea
Australia Alumni Association


The Papua New Guinea Australia Alumni Association (PNGAAA) is one of the most recognised associations in the country. Established in 2006, the Association provides support to Papua New Guineans who have studied in Australia or with Australian government support in PNG. It is a network designed to keep alumni connected with each other and with Australian institutions and people.



The biennial alumni conference will take place on Tuesday 28 September under the theme: Leadership and Innovation in Papua New Guinea’s New Normal. The conference will provide an opportunity for alumni to address the challenges COVID-19 has brought to the country under various important sectors and will introduce important domestic solutions to our economy and livelihoods during these uncertain times. Presentations will cover five themes: public health, education and training, business, industry and enterprise, agriculture and food security and tourism and hospitality in the new normal. Download the program here and flyer for more details. The abstract for the alumni conference is available here.

Applications for the latest round of the Alumni Grants Scheme are closed now. Applications related to the COVID-19 response are strongly encouraged and will be considered as they are received.
