the Endeavour Awards are now open, closing on 30th June. These awards can support the studies of incoming scholars from MUHS India in the following categories:
- Endeavour Postgraduate Scholarship (Masters or PhD level studies at the University of Sydney)
- Endeavour Research Fellowship and Endeavour Australia Cheung Kong Research Fellowship (short term research of between 4 and 6 months at the University of Sydney) – the scholars can be enrolled in a Masters or PhD at their home university in India or can be postdoctoral researchers
- Endeavour Australia India Education Council (AIEC) Research Fellowship (support for postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows from India to undertake short-term research of between 4-6 months in Australia)
- Endeavour Executive Fellowship (professional development opportunities between 1-4 months)
Individuals can apply online here:
All recipients will receive (in AUD$):
- travel allowance: $3,000 (provision to pay up to $4,500 under special circumstances)
- establishment allowance: $2,000 (fellowships) or $4,000 (scholarships)
- monthly stipend: $3,000 (paid up to the maximum category duration on a pro-rata basis)
- health insurance for the full category duration (OSHC for international recipients)
- travel insurance (excluding during programme for international recipients)
The Scholarships provide up to $15,000 per semester tuition fees, however the Sydney Medical School will provide a scholarship to fund the “gap” to cover the full cost of tuition for up to two years for Masters programs and 4 years for PhD programmes. https://internationaleducation.gov.au/endeavour%20program/scholarships-and-fellowships/international-applicants/pages/international-applicants.aspx
I thought these fellowships and scholarships would provide an excellent opportunity for Faculty Development at MUHS, as mentioned at our last meeting.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, particularly those candidates who are having trouble locating a supervisor in their field of study for a PhD or any aspect of the application process.
