Short-Term Experiences Funding

When you submit your short-term global experience (study or internship) application you are considered for funding 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.


Decisions regarding funding from UQ Employability will not be made until after many hosts require you to pay non-refundable fees. Applicants will be notified if they are eligible for grants awarded at approximately 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 study or internship 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.
