Over 52 Indian students have been selected to receive the Australia Awards-Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships for 2018, Australian High Commissioner to India Harinder Sidhu said recently.
"I congratulate the successful applicants. They have been selected on the basis of their potential to build educational, research and professional links between Australia and India. These awardees will over time become the new generation of global leaders," Sidhu said.
“The Australia Awards-Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships will forge understanding and strong networks between Indian and Australian scholars,” she said, adding, “These links will continue long after the scholars have returned to India.”
The recipients of the scholarships will study medical science, law and public health, mechanical engineering and criminology at top research universities in Australia.
Candidates selected for the awards will receive a travel allowance of $3,000, monthly stipend of $3,000 and establishment allowance of $2,000 for fellowships or $4,000 for scholarships. The recipients will also receive health and travel insurance. They will be provided tuition fees, which will be paid up to the maximum study or research duration on a pro-rata basis.
Three Australians will also undertake learning opportunities in India as part of these awards.
Internationally-competitive and merit-based, these scholarships are implemented by the Department of Education and Training of the Australian government.
The Australian government, each year, offers Australia Awards-Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships to high achieving students, researchers and professionals from around the world to study in Australia's world-class education institutions or undertake a professional development programme.
Applications for the 2019 Endeavour Scholarship and Fellowship round open in April 2018.
