Australia Awards-Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships

Endeavour Fellowship recipient Dr Fathimath Shifaza

The Australia Awards-Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships aim to develop ongoing educational, research and professional linkages between individuals, organisations and countries and to increase the skills and global awareness of high achieving individuals from Australia and overseas.

For more than 10 years, Scope Global has successfully prepared and supported Australian and international recipients to undertake and complete their program.

In 2016–17 Scope Global managed 1139 Endeavour scholarship recipients during their scholarship program. Recipients came from 63 countries to undertake their study in Australia, and Australians travelled to 32 countries to do the same.

Our team engaged recipients and alumni at 12 networking events at universities around Australia, and through dedicated and individualised case management before, during and after recipients’ scholarship programs.

Endeavour recipients undertake programs that range from short-term professional development and research courses through to postgraduate-level courses.

Scholar profile: Jesse Barker Gale

Jesse Barker Gale is an Australian Endeavour scholarship recipient who is in Washington DC working towards his PhD at Flinders University. Jesse’s PhD program analyses the trilateral Australia-Japan-United States relationship through the theoretical matrix of a security community.

Jesse completed his Endeavour study component at Georgetown University in Washington DC and in the office of Congressman Jim McDermott, the Democratic representative of the 7th Congressional District of Washington State.

In 2017 Congressman McDermott visited Flinders University for 6 weeks – largely facilitated by Jesse – where he shared his knowledge in classes at Flinders’ Centre for United States and Asia Policy Studies. Congressman McDermott is quoted as saying he puts Jesse among his top three interns in more than the 400 he has had during his term in Congress.

After finishing his study component at Georgetown University, Jesse has gone on to do a one-year internship at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, a defence and national security think tank in Washington DC. In his role he assists the Alliances and American Leadership Project, which focuses on the role of alliances in maintaining international order, the concept of ‘the West’ and the part of alliances in upholding it.
