About the Endeavour Leadership Program (ELP)

The Australian Government Department of Education and Training administers the Endeavour Leadership Program.  The Endeavour Leadership Program aims to enhance Australia's reputation for excellence in international education through the continued internationalisation of the education, training and research sectors.

The objectives of the ELP are to contribute to the implementation of Government policy priorities, by increasing international research and education engagement between Australia and priority  countries in key fields of education, research and innovation. The ELP offers achieving individuals from Australia and overseas the opportunity to develop their knowledge and expertise and build institution-to-institution connections and create the next generation of international education and research leaders across a wide variety of professional fields.
