Australian government travel grants

UOW has a number of Australian Government travel grants of between $2,000 and $8,000 per student for semester and short-courses worldwide.

The funding allows you to undertake studies in specific countries and institutions, all chosen for the availability of subjects taught in English.

There are a number of funded places for studies in Asia, through generous funding of the New Colombo Plan (NCP) scheme.

The prestigious NCP Scholarship program offers high-achieving Australian students the opportunity to undertake study, participate in an internship, and receive language training in 40 different host locations in the Indo-Pacific. Successful student applicants can receive up to $67,000 in funding, and will also receive credit towards their Australian course of study for the program.

For information on NCP and Endeavour grants available for short course programs contact your Faculty International office. For information on NCP and Endeavour Grants for semester length programs contact the Office of Global Student Mobility.
