Alumni

Gruppe von Studentinnen und Studenten © OeAD/Gianmaria Gava

Students and researchers from all over the world who studied, carried out research or worked in Austria with an OeAD scholarship are the target group of our alumni activities. Many former scholarship holders still have fond memories of their stay in Austria many years later and act as multipliers, contact persons and cooperation partners.

It is of special concern to us to stay in touch with our OeAD alumni after the end of their scholarship period and/or their return to their home countries, to inform them about current calls for application and support them in networking and the development of scientific cooperation between Austria and their relevant countries of origin.

Currently we offer the following services for our OeAD alumni:

  • oead.news for scholars & alumni
    The newsletter appears four times a year and provides information about calls for application for scholarships, interesting activities and events.
  • Alumni Portraits
    In the alumni portraits former OeAD scholarship holders introduce themselves and their research projects. They contemplate their research stays in Austria and write about their impressions and ambitions, their experiences and the challenges they faced.
  • Alumni AudioLab
    The Alumni AudioLab is a monthly podcast series in which alumni of the OeAD talk about themselves and their research.
  • Alumni Talks
    Within the framework of the Alumni Talks former OeAD scholarship holders present and talk about their personal and professional experiences during and after their scholarship-supported stay in Austria.

Moreover, former scholarship holders can stay in touch with us via Facebook.
