You’ve decided to study in Australia, congratulations! Now, about that funding…
As an international student going to Australia to pursue a degree, it can be a bit costly. Perhaps funding from your home government assists in the matter, or perhaps your Great Aunt Gertrude happily helps your tuition costs, but these aren’t your only options. Now is the time to apply for the Endeavour Awards!
What are the Endeavour Awards?
The Endeavour Awards are the Australian Government’s internationally competitive, merit-based scholarship program providing opportunities for citizens of the Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas to undertake study, research and professional development in Australia.
According to the Endeavour Awards homepage, 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 global awareness.
- Contribute to Australia’s position as a high quality education and training provider, and a leader in research and innovation.
- Increase the productivity of Australians through an international study, research or professional development experience.
Applications opened up 1 April 2011 and will close 30 June 2011. Get going and earn some funds to your education!
