High-achieving students from around the world are able to apply for educational and professional development awards. Australia has a focus on helping the Asia-Pacific region and over fi ve years, it is doubling the number of education awards offered in the region to 19,000. These opportunities support growth in the region and build lasting links between students, schools and countries. Scholarships offered by the Australian Government may be in specific fields of study, dependent on the skills needs of your home country. 1. Endeavour Awards The Endeavour Awards support excellence in international study, research and professional development and are open to students from the Asia-Pacifi c region, Middle East, Europe and the Americas. In this award, high achievers are chosen from their respective fields. Australia offers a range of scholarships to international students. The aim of these scholarships is to encourage international education, student exchange and ongoing links between countries. The scholarships on offer vary; a full scholarship may cover airfares, visa costs, tuition fees and a living allowance while a partial scholarship may cover part of your tuition fees. Most international students in Australia are full-fee paying students who are not on scholarships. There are many applications for a limited number of scholarships so you should check the selection requirements to see if you are eligible. Scholarships are offered by the Australian Government, individual universities, schools and education institutions, private organisations, international foundations and other organisations in your home country. Australia: The Education Destination The Endeavour program aims to strengthen linkages by bringing leading researchers, professionals and students from around the world to Australia for study. You can apply for a scholarship in postgraduate research or study, research fellowships, vocational study or professional development.
