The Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships aim to build Australia’s reputation for excellence in the provision of education and research, support the internationalisation of the Australian higher education and research sectors and offer high-achieving individuals from overseas and Australia opportunities to increase their productivity and expertise in their field.
As a scholarship or fellowship recipient, you will gain invaluable international experience in study, research or professional development. Australian recipients also receive support to undertake targeted research, professional development or internships overseas.
The department has engaged a contractor to provide post-selection support services to all recipients including: a dedicated case manager, pre-departure briefings, provision of advice on health, travel insurance, accommodation, security, payment of allowances, and reporting to the department on the recipient’s progress.
Applications for the 2018 round are now open. Applications will close at 11.59 pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on 30 June 2017. Please see the http://internationaleducation.gov.au/endeavour website for further information.
