Research overseas or interstate (Study Away) and (Travel Grant)
At some point in your research career, you will almost certainly get the chance to meet with the leading thinkers in your field.
We want to make sure you can take up that opportunity - no matter where in the world it arises.
Our travel grants help meet the cost of flights. They can be used to attend seminars and conferences, and to conduct fieldwork and research outside your home campus.
Applicants are urged to read the attached document very carefully and should download a copy for their records. It contains very important information about the Application Guidelines that they should be familiar with before completing the application form.
Study Away which may be with or without funding (Travel Grant) both are combined in this application.
