Program Description:

Overseas Study Grants* (Study Abroad Scholarships) are available for overseas study recognised by UWA.

Please note:
  • Grants are often paid during or after an overseas program and should not be relied upon to pay program costs.

IMPORTANT: As per UWA's Policy on International Student Mobility (Outbound) all university recognised overseas activities must be booked through a UWA preferred travel supplier - either Campus Travel (Murray Street) or STA Travel (UWA Branch) and upload the travel itinerary to Concur (UWA's risk management system). Failure to do so will render any grant (scholarship) awarded null and void. Instructions for uploading travel details to Concur will be provided after results of the grant (scholarship) application have been released.
