About the Endeavour Scholarship Scheme

The Australia Awards–Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships are the Australian Government’s competitive, merit-based scholarships and fellowships providing opportunities for Australians to undertake study, research or professional development overseas and for overseas citizens to do the same in Australia.   The Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships 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 Australians opportunities to increase their knowledge and expertise in their field.

The Minister for Education and Training the Hon. Simon Birmingham announced on 7 November that 698 recipients have been offered a 2018 Endeavour scholarship or fellowship. Three of those were our very own PhD students.
