Dear Dr Rajesh Kumar

On behalf of the Australian Government, it is my pleasure to advise that you have been selected to receive a 2010 Endeavour Executive Award (second round).

The Endeavour Awards is the Australian Government's internationally competitive, merit-based scholarship program providing opportunities for citizens of the Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Europe and Americas to undertake study, research and professional development in Australia. Awards are also available for Australians to undertake study, research and professional development abroad.

The Endeavour Awards are a part of the Australia Awards initiative which was announced by the Prime Minister in November 2009. The Australia Awards have been established to maximise the benefit to Australia of its extensive scholarship programs, and to support enduring ties between Australia and our neighbours.

The Australia Awards will bring together the international development awards administrated by the Australia Agency for International Development (AusAID) and the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) Endeavour Awards under a single recognisable brand. The Australia Awards are being progressively phased in commencing in 2010. Further information is available at .

Austraining International managers the post-selection support services for the Endeavour Awards on behalf of my Department and will assist you in your preparation for your Award.

On successful completion of your Award, you will become a member of the Endeavour Awards Alumni Network. This network will assist you to maintain the personal, business, institutional and educational links and friendships you make during your Award.

I offer you my congratulations on joining the select group of individuals who have received a prestigious Endeavour Award. I trust that the experience you gain through your participation will be both challenging and rewarding, and wish you well in this undertaking.
