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.
The Endeavour Leadership Program (ELP) is the Australian Government's two-way mobility for short and long-term study, research and professional development with Australia's priority partner countries. The ELP supports Australia's first National Strategy for International Education 2025, which sets out a 10-year plan for developing Australia as a global leader in education, training and research, through making transformative partnerships, and expanding student, education and training professional and research mobility.
The ELP provides opportunities for established and emerging leaders to undertake a global mobility experience within their study, research or professional field.
Endeavour Leaders will have the opportunity to build enduring international networks, strengthen education and research engagement between Australia and priority countries, and enhance Australia's commercial success and economic prosperity.

The Australian Government has announced a total of $118.9 million over four years for the ELP. Under the 2019 round, approximately $20 million in funding is available to support two-way mobility Leadership Activities.
