Applications for the 2019 Round of the Endeavour Scholarships close on 31 July 2018.

In order to apply, you will need to lodge two applications: one to Macquarie University and one directly to Endeavour. The Macquarie University closing date is earlier in order to allow enough time for the University to assess your application for admission into a degree. You will receive an assessment outcome letter from Macquarie University which you will need to include in your Endeavour application.

New applicants to Macquarie University will need to complete the Online HDR Candidature and Scholarship Application via the Online Application System and arrange for two academic referee reports to be submitted to the Higher Degree Research Office. Further information can be found on the How to Apply page.

Applicants who hold a Macquarie University candidature offer LESS than 12 months old will be able to apply directly to Endeavour with their offer letter. If the offer letter is for a past intake, you can request a deferral via contacting our office at hdr.admissions@mq.edu.au.
