While it's likely that you'll be getting some support through your Monash Abroad Travel Scholarship – it may not cover the full cost of your study exchange.
The good news is that it's possible to hold more than one scholarship, bursary or grant at a time – so it's a good idea to research all the different kinds of funding available to you.
Monash University Travel Funding
Monash wants to make sure that money is not a barrier to your participation in an overseas experience. We provide lots of information on funding opportunities available to students travelling overseas for study or placements.
For more information, please visit Travel and placement scholarships organised by Coursework Scholarships Unit.
Other External Funding
The Mangold Trust Language Scholarships are travel awards for advanced tertiary language students currently attending a university in Victoria who apply for an exchange or study abroad placement to continue their language studies overseas for at least one semester.
The scholarship funds contribute towards reasonable travel and living costs while the recipients are enrolled full-time at an approved overseas institution to study an accredited language and cultural program for one or two semesters (the minimum enrolment period is 12 weeks).
Advanced students of all modern languages are eligible to apply.
Travel award applications for language study abroad or exchange programs commencing in semester 1, 2020 are open from 9th September till 18th October 2019.

Australian Government grants
Endeavour Leadership Program – Student Exchange and Cheung Kong Exchange Grants
The Endeavour Leadership Program (ELP) is the Australian Government's two-way mobility for short and long-term study, research and professional development with Australia's priority partner countries.
The ELP brings together the Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships and the Endeavour Mobility Grants into a single, streamlined program. The ELP supports Australia's first National Strategy for International Education 2025, which sets out a 10-year plan for developing Australia as a global leader in education, training and research, through making transformative partnerships, and expanding student, education and training professional and research mobility.
The target countries change each year, and the grants are worth A$5000.
You'll be automatically considered for the grant if accepted into an exchange with a partner, who falls into the target region for that year.
Grants are awarded on the basis of academic merit and you'll be notified if you're successful, as soon as all exchange students have received offers from the partner universities.
The Hamer Scholarships Program
The Victorian Government has established Hamer Scholarships to support language study at sponsored universities in China, Indonesia, Korea and Japan. Scholarships amounts are between $10,000 - $15,000.
While Centrelink don't actually offer grants, it is possible for you to continue receiving your Australian Youth Allowance payments while on exchange. You'll need to obtain a request letter from your faculty – speak to them directly about this.
Exchange partner scholarships and grants
Many of our exchange partners and foreign government bodies offer scholarships and grants to encourage you to choose them as your study abroad destination.
The eligibility requirements, conditions and application details differ between each, so make sure you read the fine print.
