How much is the scholarship?

The scholarship varies from between $750 to $2000 depending on where you are planning on studying. For further information contact the Melbourne Scholarships Office.


How many scholarships are offered?

The Melbourne Scholarships Office aims to allocate scholarships to every student who is successful in obtaining a place in the Melbourne Global Mobility exchange program. The amount of the scholarship will vary depending on the amount of funding available, where you are going and the length of your exchange period.


Are there other scholarships?

For other suggestions for funding you may wish to:

  • Contact the Melbourne Scholarships Office
  • Browse web pages of host institutions
  • Talk with academic staff or Faculty advisors to see if they know of any funding or scholarships for your particular area of study
  • Contact community groups such as Rotary, to see if you can apply for their scholarships
  • Contact the embassy/consulate of the country you intend to visit to see if they have any funding for international exchange students
