Each year, Endeavour scholars and fellows are invited to submit photos that capture their experiences through the ‘Fully Focused’ Australia Awards-Endeavour Photo Competition.
We’re thrilled to announce the winners for 2016:
Incoming scholars (overseas-based scholars studying in Australia)
1st – Dr Tenzin Pasang (India) – Endeavour Fellow researching physics
2nd – Ma. Rhenette M. Cabanero (Philippines) – Master of Development Studies
Highly commended – Raman Jeet Singh (India) – Endeavour Fellow researching agriculture
Outgoing scholars (Australia-based scholars studying overseas)
1st – Edward Lum – Endeavour Fellow studying optometry in Canada
2nd – Cassie Hilditch – Endeavour Fellow researching light, sleep timing, performance and alertness in the United States.
Entrants were asked to include a short description detailing how their photo demonstrates one of the overarching objectives of the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships. These are:
- Develop ongoing educational, research and professional links between individuals, organisations and countries
- Increase the skills and global awareness of high achieving individuals from Australia and overseas
- Contribute to Australia’s reputation as a high quality provider of education and training and a leader in research and innovation
- Increase the productivity of Australians through international study, research or professional development experience.
Congratulations to all the winners! They will receive a book shop voucher and see their photos profiled throughout our materials in 2017.
1st – Incoming – Dr Tenzin Pasang has come a long way in pursuit of his dreams of working with world class scientists and laboratories. Here he is installing a small oven that he designed and made himself in a vacuum chamber. He is pictured at the Centre for Atomic, Molecular and Surface Physics, School of Physics at the University of Western Australia.
1st – Outgoing – Edward Lum – “Here I stand at the main entrance of the School of Optometry, University of Waterloo, Canada: gateway to learning for countless undergraduate students for 50 years. Each day as I pass through these doors to work as an Endeavour Research Fellow, I am immersed in a sea of creative ideas – much like the flood of letters that decorate the building’s entrance. Charged with these new insights, I look forward to returning to Australia to transfer my newly-acquired skills and knowledge to my work colleagues, the academic community, and the general public.”
