Alumni Chapter

ACPNS Alumni

ACPNS Alumni take a keen interest in the success of current and past philanthropy and nonprofit students. We donate book and travel bursaries, sponsor a student prize, host events and mentor students.

Student prize ceremony

We host an annual prize-giving ceremony for postgraduate philanthropy and nonprofit students. Alumni are welcome to join the celebration and take advantage of this networking opportunity.

Professional development

We invite alumni to our free professional development sessions. Our lecturers and other sector leaders share their insights on changes and emerging issues in the nonprofit sector such as tax and regulatory reform, fundraising, management and social enterprise.

The Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies (ACPNS) Alumni Chapter includes students and graduates of the Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma, Masters of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies, research Masters and PhD students in our area. Our members represent many organisations in the nonprofit, philanthropy and social enterprise sector across Australia, New Zealand and beyond.

Our mission

We provide support and enrich the networks of new students and graduates of philanthropy and nonprofit studies at QUT. We’re helping our alumni that are working in the nonprofit sector to make a difference.


ACPNS membership is free and open to ACPNS students and graduates. Contact us for more information.
