Australian Government Endeavour Scholarships, Fellowships and Grants

The Australian Government’s Endeavour Scholarships, Fellowships and Endeavour Mobility Grants support two-way engagement between Australia and the rest of the world. The scholarship and grants provide life changing opportunities for Australian and overseas students and professionals to access learning and research opportunities globally.

Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships 

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.

What Endeavour offers

As a scholarship or fellowship recipient, you will gain invaluable international experience in study, research or professional development.

The department has engaged a contractor to provide post-selection support services to all recipients including: a dedicated case manager, pre-departure briefings, advice on health, travel insurance, accommodation, security, payment of allowances, and reporting to the department on recipients’ progress.

Endeavour Mobility Grants

The Australian Government encourages Australian students to immerse themselves in the academic and social cultures of other countries and provides opportunities for overseas students to study in and experience Australia. The Government also seeks to support Australian higher education providers in further developing and diversifying their linkages with partner institutions overseas.

Administered by the Department of Education and Training, Endeavour Mobility Grants supports engagement between Australia and the rest of the world through student mobility. Funding is provided to Australian tertiary education providers, which in turn provide grants to Australian students to undertake mobility projects globally.

The objectives of Endeavour Mobility Grants are to:

  • support students to study overseas as part of their qualification, where the study is for academic credit or is otherwise a mandatory component of the student’s course
  • create opportunities for students to engage globally with other students, institutions and employers
  • strengthen institutional capacity to collaborate and partner with overseas education providers.
