Northern Territory students, researchers and professionals are being encouraged to apply for a share of up to $119 million in funding as part of the Coalition Government’s new Endeavour Leadership Programme.
Country Liberals Senator for the Northern Territory, Nigel Scullion, said applications for the programme were now open.
“The programme offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for Territory students to study or conduct research at leading institutions in Australia and around the world,” Senator Scullion said.
“Our economy depends on ensuring our students, academics and researchers become world leaders in their field – this investment will give them the skills to achieve that.
“Successful applicants will join the eight Endeavour recipients over the past four years from the Northern Territory.
“I encourage all eligible Territorians to apply for the programme to expand their horizons and gain insights and skills to help them become the next generation of leaders.”
It is expected around 2,500 people will take part this year, with grants starting at $2,500.
The programme is open to undergraduate, postgraduate and vocational education and training students, as well as higher education providers and registered training organisations.
It brings together the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships and the Endeavour Mobility Grants.
