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 Australia Awards–Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships program aims 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, and
  • Increase the productivity of Australians through an international study, research or professional development experience.

There are a number of different types of awards under the Endeavour Awards Funding Scheme available to both international and domestic applicants.

International applicants must apply for and be offered a program or candidature at UniSA before they can apply for an Endeavour Award. Please visit the Endeavour Awards site for more information including eligibility, key dates and the application process or contact endeavour@education.gov.au.

In order to provide Endeavour Scholarship recipients with better study experience, UniSA has agreed to waive the difference in tuition fee between the advised amount and the maximum amount Endeavour Scholarship contributes. It means that there will be no out of pocket tuition fees expenses for Endeavour recipients undertaking Masters by Coursework, Masters by Research and PhD program at UniSA.

Please inform the UniSA Australia Awards Team once you have secured an Endeavour Scholarship so that the team can work on waiving your gap tuition fee.
