The ENDEAVOUR Scholarships Scheme is intended to support good quality tertiary education and to ensure that the Maltese labour market is supplied with the right individuals and to guarantee that it is in a better position to compete at an international level. The scheme is aimed to support those pursuing this path to succeed both at the level of education attainment as well as contributing effectively towards the economy.
The ENDEAVOUR Scheme which aims to address the above objectives is part-financed by the European Union Operational Programme II – Cohesion Policy 2014 – 2020.
For this 7th Call, €800,000 in funds are being made available.
With key objectives to assist people to pursue further levels of academic research; improve the quality and relevance of the education system; reduce skills mismatches particularly within the priority economic sectors; support further research in science and technology; and increase the capacity and level of research, innovation and development activity in Malta, this scheme is aiming to attract Maltese citizens.
