The second edition of the Australia Caribbean Alumni Newsletter is now available!


The Australian High Commission is pleased to share the second edition of our Australia Caribbean Alumni Newsletter with you.

This edition features even more of our wonderful alumni across the region and offers insight into their professional aspirations and plans to support the development of the region.

In closing "We hope at you enjoyed the first edition as much as we did. The first edition received glowing responses from many of our readers, including from your governments across the Caribbean as we spread the word across the region... The Australian High Commission stands ready to support and strengthen our Australia-Caribbean connections and hopes that with your support the bond of friendship will grow as more Alumni return from their Australian experience – whether self-funded or through a Government-funded initiative." Tracey Haines, Deputy High Commissioner.


Introducing the Australia Caribbean Alumni Newsletter



The Australian High Commission is proud to share the inaugural edition of the Australia Caribbean Alumni Newsletter (ACAN).

Regionally, the last intake of Australia Awards Scholars occurred in January 2014. When the final Australia Awards scholar completes their tertiary education in Australia in 2018 there will be a total of 128 Australia Awards Alumni in the Caribbean. But these are not the only alumni that Australia can lay claim to in the region. A number of persons across the Caribbean have also benefitted from an Australian higher education and also contribute their knowledge and experience gained, in support of the advancement of their country and the region.

This newsletter seeks to highlight these scholars and the wonderful work they are doing right here in the Caribbean and abroad. Members of the Australian Alumni community across the region are encouraged to join the group\'s professional LinkedIn page.

Alumni are also regularly featured on our Facebook page, "Australia in the Caribbean." Interested Alumni can share their experiences in Australia by emailing pd.caribbean@dfat.gov.au or pd.caribbean.pos@gmail.com (large image files).

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
