Two people from Lingiari have been awarded the opportunity to study and do research overseas during 2015 under the Australian Government’s Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships programme.
Country Liberals Senator for the Northern Territory Nigel Scullion today said Mrs Rosealyn Bauer and Dr Ali Sarkhosh, who have received scholarships, can be very proud of their success in this competitive process.
“Across Australia these postgraduate scholarships and fellowships will allow 154 top-performing Australians to further their skills and knowledge and develop Australia’s research links overseas while building their international experience,” Senator Scullion said.
“By winning a scholarship or fellowship these two recipients from our community have shown themselves to be amongst the brightest in Australia.”
“Mrs Rosealyn Bauer, from Yuendumu, will go to Norway to study education while Dr Ali Sarkhosh, who is from Katherine, will head to the USA to further studies in Horticulture,” Senator Scullion said.
The programme will also support 528 highly competitive recipients from overseas to study in Australia.
“The Government understands the importance of creating opportunities for the people of communities like ours to advance their education, research and professional development, both at home and overseas,” Senator Scullion said.
Applications for the 2016 Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships round will open in April 2015.
