Overview of Endeavour Mobility Grants
Endeavour Mobility Grants
The Australian Government has established the Endeavour Mobility Grants to provide support for Australian students to study overseas as part of their Australian qualification.
Endeavour Mobility Grants support Australian Students to have an overseas study experience that contributes to their Australian qualification. In 2016 at the TC Beirne School of Law students, through short-term study, are able engage in the academic and social cultures of other regions, strengthening their global knowledge and experience.
Endeavour Mobility Grants are designed to :
- support students to study overseas as part of their qualification, where the study is for academic credit or is otherwise a mandatory component of the student’s course
- create opportunities for students to engage globally with other students, institutions and employers
- strengthen institutional capacity to collaborate and partner with overseas education providers.
Short-term Grants are provided at a rate of $2000 per student to allow students to participate in a Project less than six months in duration.
Funding is available to support Projects undertaken between 1 January 2016 and 31 January 2017.
Welfare and safety
The welfare and safety of students involved in an Endeavour Mobility Grants Project is of utmost importance.
Students receiving a Grant should make independent inquiries about the risks involved in overseas travel. This should include visiting Smartraveller for current information about risks overseas and how to prepare for overseas travel. Students should register with Smartraveller and subscribe to relevant travel advisories before starting their Project (http://smartraveller.gov.au/).
Study Overseas Short-term Mobility Program
The Study Overseas Short-term Mobility Program (STMP) provides Short-term Grants for Undergraduate Students to undertake study overseas that is for Academic Credit or is otherwise a mandatory component of the Student’s course. STMP grants may be used to support Students to participate in short-term (less than six months) Projects in a relevant field or course of study.
The aims of STMP are to:
- increase the overall number of students with an overseas study experience related to their field of study
- encourage students through a short-term study experience to consider longer-term mobility options
- increase collaboration between higher education institutions in Australia and participating institutions or organisations overseas
- assist institutions that are seeking to diversify their Programs to include innovative options, minority groups and/or non-traditional locations.
A Student participating in a STMP Project and receiving a Short-term Grant must:
- be an Australian citizen or Australian permanent resident
- be enrolled at an eligible Australian Higher Education Provider
- be enrolled in an LLB, LLB(Hons) or associated dual degree program at the TC Beirne School of Law at the commencement of the Project
- not have previously received an STMP grant under a current or past STMP Project.
The Grant Provider encourages active support for potential participants from "Disadvantaged or low socio-economic (SES) backgrounds".
