98 Scholarships for Non- Degree Training in Australia.

There are 98 awards (scholarships) available for undergraduates who have got work experience and those who did not complete undergraduate study with longer work experience to pursue a professional development training in Australia. If you are selected, you have to stay in Australia for 1 to 4 months with the total fund of $UASD 20.000,00.


The Endeavour Executive Awards provide professional development opportunities (e.g. intensive management training, peer-to-peer learning, short-term training, leadership and/or executive management training) for high achievers in business, industry, education or government from participating countries. The Awards focus on building skills and knowledge through a host work environment rather than through formal enrolment in a study program at a host institution and are not intended to fund direct academic research.

Applicants must be nominated by either their home organisation or host organisation. The professional development activity must not have a commercial outcome as its purpose. Host organisations for international Executive Award applicants cannot include Australian branches of the applicant's home organisation.

A home or host organisation may nominate up to 5 applicants.
The Endeavour Executive Awards aim to:
• enable high achieving professionals to further develop their skills and knowledge
• deepen professional engagements between Australia and participating countries
• strengthen mutual understanding between the people of Australia and Award Holders’ home countries
• build linkages and networks between Australia and participating countries
• allow professionals the opportunity, on returning home, to share their updated skills and knowledge with colleagues.
