Australia Scholarships Tips | Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships
Please check out the first part of this video, which discusses about introduction to scholarship opportunities in Australia . Link is below:
If you want to apply, be sure of why you are keen to study in that particular course and university.” Apart from this, make sure you get credible recommendations from people who matter and know you well. Secondly, make a power-packed statement about who you are and why you deserve to be funded. These tips are relevant while applying for any scholarship, but carry greater weight for the Endeavour scholarships as everything depends on the application.
Since scholarship application is quite competitive, your application must stand out above the rest. This means you must not only meet the scholarship criteria set by the scholarship provider but exceed it. The key here is to know the specific criteria set by the scholarship provider and make it work to your advantage. Once you know their criteria, you can find creative ways to highlight the strengths of your scholarship application.
For example, if you don’t have very good academic grades, you can highlight relevant extra-curricular activities in your personal motivation letter. In another example, you can do a little extra research about the current areas of focus of the scholarship provider because sometimes, students are chosen based on their chosen field of study or research – if it aligns with the scholarship provider’s core mission/themes. It is also useful to know the profiles of previous scholarship recipients; it will give you an idea of the kind of student that the scholarship providers are looking for.
There are many scholarships, grants, and bursaries which can help support you financially with your studies in Australia. They are offered by the Australian Government, education institutions, and a number of other public and private organisations.
In 2018, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) offered 4031 Australia Awards scholarships, fellowships and short courses to individuals from over 60 developing countries at an estimated budget of $320 million. Australia Awards are prestigious international scholarships and fellowships offering the next generation of global leaders an opportunity to undertake study, research and professional development in Australia and for high-achieving Australians to do the same overseas.
The Australia Awards are a whole-of-government initiative bringing together scholarships and fellowships administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Department of Education and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research.
