Endeavour Awards 2011 from Australian Government

Overview

The Endeavour Awards is the Australian Government’s internationally competitive, merit‐based scholarship program providing opportunities for citizens of the Asia‐Pacific, Middle East, Europe and Americas to undertake study, research and professional development in Australia. Awards are also available for Australians to undertake study, research and professional development abroad.

The Endeavour Awards aim to:

• Develop on-going educational, research and professional linkages between individuals, organisations and countries;
• Provide opportunities for high achieving individuals from Australia and overseas to increase their skills and enhance their gloal awareness;
• Contribute to Australia’s position as a high quality education and training provider, and a leader in research and innovation; and
• Increase the productivity of Australians through an international study, research or professional development experience.

The Endeavour Awards are a part of the Australia Awards initiative which was announced by the Prime Minister in November 2009. The Australia Awards have been established to maximise the benefit to Australia of its extensive scholarship programs, and to support enduring ties between Australia and our neighbours.

The Australia Awards will bring together the international development awards administrated by the Australian Agency for Interntional Development (AusAID) and the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations’ (DEEWR) Endeavour Awards under a single recognisable brand. The Australia Awards are being progressively phased in commencing in 2010.
