The Endeavour Awards is an internationally competitive, merit-based
program providing opportunities for citizens of the Asia-Pacific region
to undertake study, research and professional development in Australia.
The aims of the Endeavour Awards are to:
Deepen Australia’s global engagement in education and research;
Reinforce Australia’s reputation as a high quality education
provider and leader in research, innovation and knowledge management;
Enhance language skills and cultural understanding of Australia; and
Provide opportunities for Australian professionals to enhance
their skills and knowledge.
*Endeavour Awards for international applicants
*Through the Endeavour Awards, the Australian Government provides
opportunities for high achieving international students, researchers and
professionals to undertake short or long term study, research and
professional development in Australia in a broad range of disciplines.
Endeavour Research Fellowships provide financial support for
postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows from participating
countries to undertake short-term research (4-6 months), in any field of
study, in Australia. Aimed at building international linkages and
networks, these Awards provide opportunities for award holders to
further develop their knowledge and skills
*Postgraduate study or research*
Endeavour Postgraduate Awards provide full financial support for
international students for up to 3 years to undertake a postgraduate
qualification at a Masters or PhD level either by coursework or research
in any field of study in Australia.
*Vocational education and training*
An Endeavour Vocational Education and Training (VET) Award enables you
to study a vocational course at the Diploma, Advanced Diploma or
Associate Degree level in any field of study in Australia.
Provide professional development opportunities for high achievers in
business, industry, education or government from participating countries.
This award provides you with the flexibility to design a program that
advances both your professional and personal goals. In consultation with
your host organisation, the one to four month program may include
activities such as a shadowing program, work placement, attendance at a
conference, participation in a short course, or peer-to-peer learning.
The Australian Government recognises the many enduring benefits of
international exchanges undertaken during the years of undergraduate
education. To encourage greater student mobility, the Australian
Government funds Australian higher education providers to subsidise the
costs to students participating in student exchanges which include
tuition fee waiver and credit transfer.
