Monash Abroad Travel Grant

About our grants

Monash Abroad want to make it easy for you to take part in conversations, innovations and discoveries happening all over the world while you're studying. Because when you study at Monash, you're part of a global university that's creating global citizens – the leaders, thinkers and doers of tomorrow's exciting and complex world.

That's why we've created the Monash Abroad Travel Grant – the most comprehensive grant we've ever had the privilege to offer. It's designed to support you in experiencing any kind of international exchange (from internships and volunteering, to presenting at conferences or taking up clinical placements) that will add value to your degree, and to your career.

A healthy difference

The difference between our grants and others offered by Monash, or other funding bodies, is that along with giving you financial assistance, we also make sure you're well looked after.

The Monash Abroad Travel Grant includes comprehensive travel insurance coverage – meaning you don't need to pay for this yourself. Our scholarship provides you with unlimited medical coverage, and covers your personal items like baggage, prior to, during and after your exchange. It even includes 24-hour medical and emergency assistance.

Extra funding

While our grant does cover you for some of your exchange expenses, it may not cover the whole cost. It's a good idea to research all forms of funding that may be available to you – like other scholarships and loans. It's possible to hold more than one scholarship or grant at a time, so why not apply for anything and everything.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the Monash Abroad Travel Grant you must:

  • be enrolled as a coursework student at a Monash campus (in Australia)
  • be approved by your faculty or Monash Abroad to go on an overseas program.

Students are not eligible for a Monash Abroad travel grant or Monash travel insurance, if they are on intermission during their overseas program.

If you're enrolled at Monash Malaysia you're entitled to different scholarships. For details you should speak to your local Monash Abroad office about what's available.

How much will I get?

Scholarship amounts will vary from time-to-time based on the number of students travelling, Monash's broader strategic initiatives, faculty overseas program activity and the availability of funding.

If you exchange to the same host university for two consecutive semesters you will receive one travel scholarship for your entire time abroad.
