A new opportunity to access mobility funding has become available, through the Endeavour Scholarship. Offered by the Department of Education, the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships are internationally competitive, merit-based scholarships provided by the Australian Government that support citizens of the Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas to undertake study, research and professional development programmes in Australia and for Australians to undertake these programmes overseas.
ORSP brings together the country’s operations research and management science practitioners, academicians, enthusiasts and functional managers. Shortly after its founding in 1987, ORSP was accepted into the 48 national-member group of the International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS). IFORS, which counts the Operations Research Society of America, the Operational Research Society of the United Kingdom, and the Societe Francaise de Recherche Operationnelle as its original national member societies, was founded in 1959. The Association of Asia-Pacific Operations Research Societies (APORS) is the regional IFORS grouping to which ORSP belongs.
Aside from the annual General Membership Meetings, held every June or July, that serve as a forum to discuss pertinent issues and new directions, the Society hosts quarterly technical forums, e.g., OR in the Energy Industry; Effective Paper Writing for OR Journals; OR in the Food and Traffic Sectors. ORSP also publishes an annual journal, the Philippine Journal of Operations Research (PJOR), which features papers by local and foreign authors. It also publishes a quarterly ORSP Newsletter for members.
