Endeavour Bulletin - November 2015



The second half of this year has seen the 2016 Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships round finalised. The recently appointed International Education Minister, Senator Richard Colbeck was pleased to announce the successful recipients on 5 November. The Endeavour Team welcomes  these new recipients to the Endeavour community and looks forward to hearing how an Endeavour scholarship impacts on their lives.

The selection panels comprising eminent academics, professionals and government representatives reported that this round attracted a large number of high-quality applications and competition for these prestigious awards was once again very strong.

The department’s exhibition booth at the recent Australian International Education Conference (AIEC) provided a wonderful opportunity to catch up with many of our stakeholders. We also had the pleasure of meeting with the new Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Simon Birmingham.
In his keynote address, the Minister stated that the recent appointment of the Minister Colbeck as the first Minister for International Education demonstrates an increased government focus on international education. You can read more about the AIEC below.

On 15 October Minister Colbeck announced the successful recipients of the Government’s 2016 Endeavour Mobility Grants. Nearly 70 tertiary institutions will share in $8.3 million in funding to support 2,870 Australian undergraduate, postgraduate and VET students to live and study overseas.

It is interesting to learn that 13 per cent of recipients have undertaken their scholarship in the field of health. In this issue we showcase some of their stories and experiences. A big thank you to them for their contributions. We hope that you enjoy reading about their remarkable journeys.

We look forward to hearing from other recipients on how an Endeavour scholarship or fellowship has changed your life.
