Recently, with the help of Australian High Commission in India, a unique initiative the Australian Alumni Association of India has been started.
This association invites all alumni of Australian universities and institutions who have returned to India.
Its sole purpose is to strengthen and expand India’s relationship with Australia.
Vivek Dahiya, the National Director of Membership, says that “the association offers its members a common bond with the country of our ‘alma mater’ – Australia.”
“Working Pro Bono we get together all mates to flourish an organisation which is capable of delivering a plethora of benefits social as well as professionals,” adds Vivek.
The association has a Facebook page to connect all graduates.
In 2015, the association also started Australian Alumni Excellence Awards.
This recognizes the outstanding achievements by Australian alumni of Indian origin in the fields of:
Entrepreneurship & Industry Excellence
Education & Public Service
Science & Technology
Sports, Art & Culture
Food, Travel, Leisure
Young Achiever Award
Community Service (Citizen of the Year)
In addition, this association offers guest lectures, workshops, mentorship, and career networking opportunities.
