Endeavour Leadership Program

As part of the 2019-20 Budget, the Australian Government has announced there will be no further rounds of the Endeavour Leadership Program (ELP).

The Australian Government will continue to support current Endeavour program cohorts (2014-19) until scholars have finished their program. Current individual students and Institutions should continue to direct their queries to Scope Global and any further enquiries can be directed to elp.enquiries@scopeglobal.com. 

The ELP is the Australian Government's previous two-way mobility for short and long-term study, research and professional development with Australia's priority partner countries. The ELP is providing opportunities for established and emerging leaders to undertake a global mobility experience within their study, research or professional field.

Support Services
To ensure recipients and institutions are gaining the most from their experience they receive ongoing support for the duration of their leadership activity. Upon successful completion, Individual recipients will be eligible for membership of the Alumni Network. This network maintains the personal, institutional and educational links and friendships made.
Scope Global has been appointed by the department to provide administration and post-selection support services to institutions and recipients. These services include:
  • a dedicated case manager
  • provision of advice on health, travel, insurance, accommodation, security and legal matters
  • payment of funding
  • reporting to the department on recipients’ progress.


Cheung Kong Infrastructure (Holdings) Limited

In 2004 the department entered into sponsorship agreement with Cheung Kong Infrastructure (Holdings) Limited through its Australian subsidiary Powercorp Australia Limited, where the Government agreed to provide financial support to the Cheung Kong Exchange and Endeavour Australia Cheung Kong Research Leadership Award. The partnership between Cheung Kong and the Australian Government has:

·       enabled the Endeavour Leadership Program to reach a wider audience both domestically and internationally, including high profile communities in business and government

·       developed a prestigious reputation within Australian and international universities, research organisations and other stakeholders

·       demonstrated a successful model, on a practical scale, for future partnerships with other private sector partners.
