Our Origins

In June 1999 a group of Alumni organized the first interclub Happy Hour with 250 alumni with the objective of bringing together graduates of different foreign universities.
This gathering continued to take place year after year and proved to be a perfect place for developing academic, professional, and social contacts. At some point, we realized that we were a network of 3,000 Argentineans who had studied abroad.

Next we thought “What is the point of having this rich network of human capital without generating projects and activities that bring these people together?
A network without content is worthless. For this reason we decided that it wasn’t enough to organize one annual social event. We decided to take the next step which was to create a foundation that could serve as an administrative center for Alumni Clubs that didn’t have much infrastructure, and thus enrich the network alongside those Clubs that were well established.

The Alumni Foundation of Argentina focuses on candidates who are interested in having an academic experience abroad, taking advantage of the existing Alumni network to provide first-hand information about all aspects of the experience.

The human talent in Argentina is unlimited and for this reason we must creatively imagine what to do with it. Returning to the country after studying abroad is difficult for several reasons and the services provided by our network are very useful for returning graduates.

The philosophy behind the creation of ALFA was to capitalize on our own academic experience abroad. There are currently 47 Alumni Clubs or associations, and there is great potential for establishing more Clubs so that all Alumni may be integrated in a common framework of mutual assistance.
