Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships Program by Australian Government 2018

The Australian Government Department of Education and Training administers the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships. 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. 

The Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships aim to:
  • develop ongoing educational, research and professional links between individuals, organisations and countries
  • increase the skills and global awareness of high achieving individuals from Australia and overseas
  • contribute to Australia’s reputation as a high quality provider of education and training and a leader in research and innovation
  • increase the productivity of Australians through international study, research or professional development experience.
Since 2007, a total of 4,481 Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships have been received by internationals and 1,330 have been received by Australians to undertake research, study or professional development across 127 eligible countries. 

Funding

Funding for the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships program is provided by the Australian Government. The program typically offers three–quarters of the scholarships and fellowships funded each year to overseas citizens, with support ranging from short-term fellowships or research placements to full postgraduate degrees. Australians receive support to undertake targeted research and professional development overseas. 

Support Services

To ensure recipients gain the most from their experience they will receive ongoing support for the duration of their Endeavour scholarship or fellowship. Recipients will also be able to share their journey with other recipients from around the globe. Upon successful completion, recipients will be eligible for membership of the Alumni Network. This network maintains the personal, institutional and educational links and friendships made.
 
Scope Global has been appointed by the department to provide post-selection support services to recipients. These services include:
  • a dedicated case manager
  • pre-departure briefings
  • provision of advice on health, travel, insurance, accommodation, security and legal matters
  • payment of allowances
  • reporting to the department on recipients’ progress.
