Australian Endeavour scholarships - 2013: online applications are now open

Vietnamese scholars, researchers and professionals are encouraged to apply for the 2013 Endeavour Awards, the Australian Government’s internationally competitive, merit-based scholarships, provide opportunities to undertake study, research and professional development in Australia.

Endeavour scholarships promote leadership, research and academic excellence and build linkages between Australia and participating countries. Endeavour scholarships are open to all fields of study and there is no age limit for applicants.

Applications for the 2013 Endeavour scholarships open on 1 April 2012 and close on 30 June 2012.

The Endeavour scholarships are available for postgraduate study (masters and PhD), research fellowship, professional development and vocational training.

Since the Endeavour scholarships were introduced in 2006, Vietnamese applicants have performed very strongly and won around 300 awards. Last year, 73 high-achieving Vietnamese scholars and professionals won prestigious Endeavour scholarships for study, research and professional development in Australia, including six prestigious Prime Minister’s Australia Asia Awards (from only twenty in the region). This is a testament to the calibre and initiative of Vietnamese scholars.

“The Endeavour scholarship recipients from Vietnam are outstanding scholars, researchers and potential leaders in their individual fields. I am confident that, after their return from Australia, they will apply their new skills, knowledge and experiences to contribute to Vietnam’s future and will maintain strong and productive linkages with Australia” the Australian Ambassador to Vietnam, HE Mr Allaster Cox said.

The Endeavour scholarships also provide opportunities for Australians to undertake research and professional development in Vietnam. Later this year, five Australians will take up Endeavour Awards for research and cooperation with Vietnamese organisations.
