Ross Vasta has encouraged students, researchers and professionals in Bonner to apply for a share of up to $119 million in funding as part of the Morrison Government’s new Endeavour Leadership Program.
Ross Vasta said applications for the program were now open.
“The program offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for students in Bonner to study or conduct research at leading institutions in Australia and around the world,” Ross Vasta 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 more than 200 Endeavour recipients over the past four years who have lived and studied in Bonner.
“I encourage all eligible people in Bonner to apply for the program 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 program 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.
