In its AGM held on 30 August 2014, Aligarh Muslim University Alumni of Australia elected a new executive committee to carry out its social and educational programmes for the next two years.

The AMU Alumni has been working for more than 20 years and one of its main tasks is to grant scholarship to economically disadvantaged students in India from a scholarship fund established in Australia.
