Senator Payne Announces New Funding to Support Local Students in the Blue Mountains
The Program offers students the opportunity to develop their knowledge and expertise and build institution-to-institution connections and create the next generation of international education and research leaders across a wide variety of professional fields.
The program is open to undergraduate, postgraduate and vocational education and training students, as well as higher education providers and registered training organisations.
Senator Payne said applications for the program were now open and encouraged the lodgement of submissions.
“The program offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for students in the Blue Mountains to study or conduct research at leading institutions in Australia and around the world,” Senator Payne said.
“Our economy depends on ensuring our students, academics and researchers become world leaders in their field – this investment will give them the skills to achieve that.”
It is expected that around 2,500 people will take part this year, with grants starting at $2,500.
It brings together the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships and the Endeavour Mobility Grants.
For more information or to apply, visit the Department of Education and Training’s website.
Applications close Thursday 15 November 2018.
