Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships

Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships

Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships are internationally competitive, merit-based scholarships provided by the Australian Government that support citizens of the Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas to undertake study, research and professional development programmes in Australia and for Australians to undertake these programmes overseas. The Australian Government Department of Education and Training administers the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships.

The Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships build Australia’s reputation for excellence in the provision of education, support the internationalisation of the Australian higher education and research sectors and offer high-achieving Australians opportunities to increase their knowledge 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.
