When you submit your short-term global experience (study or internship) application you are automatically considered for funding that is relevant to your nominated experience. 

Funding should not be a factor when developing your budget and should only be considered supplementary financial support if awarded.

Short-term experience funding is awarded by a selection committee on the basis of criteria specific to the relevant funding.

Applicants will be considered for only one of the below grants per application round.


Decisions regarding funding from UQ will not be made until after many hosts will require you to pay non-refundable fees. Applicants will be notified if they are eligible for grants and scholarships awarded by the Internships and Global Experiences Team approximately at the following times:

  • Summer Application Round: late-October
  • Winter Application Round: mid-May

Please note that funding is not guaranteed even if all selection criteria is met.


If you submit a short-term global experience application by the appropriate deadline you will be automatically considered for this funding. 

More funding

If you participate in a short-term global experience (in-person only) you may also be eligible to submit an application for an OS-HELP loan if your program is for-credit and you are enrolled as a Commonwealth supported student.
