Successful applicants are paid in one instalment prior to departure upon proof of enrolment into the short-term study tour or field trip course. Bursaries range from $500 to $2500 depending on the student's application, financial need, destination country and length of trip.
Please note that students who are in receipt of other awards (for example the Ethel Tory Language Scholarship, New Colombo Plan Scholarship) can only receive $500 as additional support.
In light of constant COVID changes, bursaries are to be used for refundable expenditure only. In the event any fieldwork is cancelled, the grants will need to be repaid.
Applications are due eight (8) weeks PRIOR to your departure date.
The College acknowledges that applications opened late for students travelling in Autumn, Winter and Semester 1 2023 and will accept late applications for those students who cannot submit 8 weeks prior to their departure. Please submit applications as soon as practicable in order to be assessed and, if successful, reveive funds in a timely manner.
Students who apply after the travel dates will not be considered for a bursary.
