When you submit your short-term global experience application you are automatically considered for the following grants. 

Please note that funding is not guaranteed even if all selection criteria is met. Funding should not be a factor when developing your budget and should only be considered supplementary financial support if awarded.

Short-term funding is awarded by a selection committee on the basis of academic merit, and academic progression as provided at the time of application, and in consideration of other scholarships awarded to the student for participation in a global experience.


Please do not rely on this funding to support your global experience. Decisions regarding funding from UQ will not be made until after many hosts will require you to pay a non-refundable fees. Applicants will be notified if they are eligible for travel grants and scholarships awarded by the Global Experiences Team approximately at the following times:

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