Australian Government Department of Education and Training: Endeavour Executive Fellowship
The Endeavour Executive Fellowship provides financial support towards professional development opportunities (1-4 months) for high achievers in business, industry, education or government for international and Australian applicants.
The Endeavour Executive Fellowship focuses on learning and building skills and knowledge through a host work environment in the applicant’s field or area of expertise rather than through formal enrolment in a study programme.
The Endeavour Executive Fellowship is not suitable for academic research proposals (academic research proposals are more suited for an Endeavour Research Fellowship). If the proposed programme contributes to or results in an applicant receiving a formal qualification, they will not be eligible to apply for this category.
Applicants must be nominated by their host organisation. The professional development activity must be vocationally useful while not being geared toward an immediate commercial outcome as its purpose. Professional development activities could include attending a conference or short course, management training, peer-to-peer learning or mentoring.
