Endeavour Leadership Program

As part of the 2019-20 Budget, the Australian Government has announced there will be no further rounds of the Endeavour Leadership Program (ELP).


The Australian Government will continue to support current Endeavour program cohorts (2014-19) until scholars have finished their program. Current individual students and Institutions should continue to direct their queries to Scope Global and any further enquiries can be directed to endeavour@dese.gov.au.

About the program

The ELP is the Australian Government's two-way mobility for short and long-term study, research and professional development with Australia's priority partner countries. The ELP supports Australia's first National Strategy for International Education 2025, which sets out a 10-year plan for developing Australia as a global leader in education, training and research, through making transformative partnerships, and expanding student, education and training professional and research mobility. 

The ELP provides opportunities for established and emerging leaders to undertake a global mobility experience within their study, research or professional field. 

Endeavour Leaders have the opportunity to build enduring international networks, strengthen education and research engagement between Australia and priority countries, and enhance Australia's commercial success and economic prosperity.

Funding supports high performing individuals, tertiary providers and their students from around the globe the opportunity to undertake study, professional development or research and increase their expertise in their field.

The outcomes of the 2019 ELP round were announced by Minister Tehan on 8 March 2019. This provided opportunities for individual students, researchers, professionals as well as higher education providers and registered training organisations to fund international mobility.
