Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships
2016 applications are now open online


The 2016 round of the Australian Government’s Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships is now open. Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships are merit-based scholarships and fellowships providing opportunities for citizens around the world to undertake study, research or professional development in Australia and for Australians to do the same overseas.

The Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships aim to build Australia’s reputation for excellence in the provision of education and research, support the internationalisation of Australian higher education and research and offer high-achieving individuals from overseas and Australia opportunities to increase their productivity and expertise in their field.

Vietnamese scholars, researchers and professionals are encouraged to apply for the 2016 Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships. Applications are online, open to all fields of study and there is no age limit for applicants.

Vietnam has a strong record in competing for Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships. Since 2007, 393 Vietnamese citizens have been successful in gaining an Endeavour Scholarship or Fellowship. Last year alone, 44 Vietnamese received these prestigious awards, including 15 PhD scholarships, the highest number of any eligible country.

“The Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships support high-achieving scholars, researchers and potential leaders. I am confident that, after returning from Australia, the Vietnamese Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships recipients will apply their new knowledge, skills, and experiences to contribute to Vietnam’s future and will maintain strong and productive links with Australia” the Australian Ambassador to Vietnam, HE Mr Hugh Borrowman said.

The Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships also provide opportunities for Australians to undertake research and professional development in Vietnam.

Applications for the 2016 Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships open April 2015 and close on Tuesday 30 June 2015 at 11.59 am AEST. Further information is available at
