Endeavour Postgraduate Scholarships for international applicants

The Endeavour Postgraduate Scholarship is part of the Australian Government's Endeavour Awards, and provides financial support for international students for up to 4 years to undertake a postgraduate qualification at a Masters or PhD level either by coursework or research in any field of study in Australia.

In order to provide Endeavour Scholarship recipients with better study experience, UniSA has agreed to waive the difference in tuition fee between the advised amount and the maximum amount Endeavour Scholarship contributes. It means that there will be no out of pocket tuition fees expenses for Endeavour recipients undertaking Masters by Coursework, Masters by Research and PhD program at UniSA.

How to apply

There are three parts to the application process.

First, you must check your eligibility.

Second, you must apply for a research degree at the University of South Australia. 


  • Apply online for admission to a research degree at the University of South Australia (we will be your host institution). 
  • In your application, you must indicate that you intend to apply for the Endeavour Award.
  • The University of South Australia must receive your application, including supporting documents and two academic referees reportsat minimum of four weeks prior to the Endeavour close date, otherwise we cannot guarantee letters of offer will be provided prior to the Australian Government's Endeavour Postgraduate Scholarship closing dates.
  • If your application to the University of South Australia is successful, you will receive a formal conditional offer for admission to a masters by research or PhD program. After you receive this, you can proceed to the third step. 

Third, you must apply to the Australian Government by their closing date.


  • Submit an application to the Australian Government.
  • Ultimately, the Australian Government decides whether or not you receive the Endeavour Postgraduate Scholarship. 

Please note: applications received this year will be for degrees commencing next year.

The Department of Education and Training will notify the University the successful applicants for each round of the Scholarship application. The UniSA Australia Awards Team will then work on waiving any gap tuition fee for Endeavour Scholarship recipients including Masters by coursework, Masters by research and PhD level.
