Endeavour Bulletin - May 2015


Subscribe to the Endeavour Bulletin 


This edition of the Endeavour Bulletin coincides with the 2016 Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships Round application period. It will be a busy couple of months for the Endeavour Team as we answer hundreds of enquires a day from potential applicants.

We were fortunate to meet with many of you at our annual state based Endeavour professional development workshops and receptions. We are always inspired to hear about the diverse research and study being undertaken from recipients on their Endeavour scholarship and also to catch up with alumni and learn where their professional lives are taking them. Photographs taken at each event can be viewed on Flickr.

A current focus of the Australian Government is on building closer relationships with Latin America. The department’s Manager of International Group, Anne Baly, recently visited Latin America to expand and diversify Australia’s international education engagement in what is a rapidly growing region. You can read more about this visit below.

Over the past few years, an increasing number of students from Latin America have been choosing to study in Australia. To build on this we are eager to encourage more two-way mobility between Australian scholars, researchers and professionals to the region through the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships and Mobility programmes. The achievements of some of these recipients are highlighted in this edition and we hope you enjoy reading about their Endeavour experience.
It is always a pleasure to hear about the achievements of Endeavour recipients. We have shared some of these with you and look forward to hearing how an Endeavour scholarship has made a difference to your life.

Finally, if you know of a high achieving postgraduate student or researcher, urge them to apply before 30 June 2015.
