About the Endeavour Leadership Program:
The ELP is the Australian Government’s two-way mobility program for brief 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 (the Strategy). The Strategy lays out a 10-year plan for developing Australia as an international pioneer in education, research and training, through making behavioural partnerships (Pillar 2 of this Strategy), and expanding student, education and training professional and research mobility (Action 6.2 of this Strategy).
The ELP provides opportunities for emerging and established leaders to tackle a worldwide mobility experience inside their study, research or professional field.
Endeavour Leaders will have the chance to build enduring international networks, strengthen research and education involvement between Australia and priority countries, and improve Australia’s commercial success and financial prosperity.
The ELP was declared as a member of this 2018-19 Budget and will run from 2019. This is a continuous program and application rounds will be held yearly.
The goals of this ELP will be to:
- improve Australia’s reputation for excellence in international education via the continuing internationalisation of their education, research and training sectors
- contribute to the implementation of Government policy priorities, by increasing global research and education participation between Australia and priority nations in key areas of education, research and innovation
- offer high-achieving individuals from Australia and overseas the chance to develop their own understanding and experience and build institution-to-institution connections
- create another generation of global education and study leaders across a huge array of professional fields.
The intended outcomes of the ELP are:
- growth in the number of durable, high-value institutional and human connections as a consequence of ELP-funded education, training, research and professional activities
- an increase in the number of top quality research outcomes (such as commercialisation and joint publications) leading to ELP funding
- employability of Endeavour Leaders and consequent contribution to the Australian economy.
The ELP will be undertaken in accordance with the Commonwealth’s Grants Rules and Guidelines (CGRGs) accessible at https://www.finance.gov.au/resource-management/grants/.
