This financial support is currently not available.


Students who successfully apply for the ANU-IARU Travel Grant will receive their payment in two installments. The first instalment of A$1,000 will be paid once the grant has been approved.

To be eligible to receive the travel grant, applicants must meet all of the following criteria:

  • be visiting an IARU partner institution
  • have completed at least one full year (full-time or equivalent) of tertiary study
  • have completed at least six months of study (full-time or equivalent) at ANU
  • be enrolled at ANU at the time of application
  • have a minimum average mark of 65 per cent (not applicable to research students or students enrolled in the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery)
  • either be receiving full credit toward their degree(s) as a result of the travel activity or stating clearly what they intend to accomplish in completing the study/research
  • be an enrolled undergraduate or graduate student at ANU for the duration of the period overseas

PhD students may receive a maximum of two ANU-IARU Travel Grants during the course of their candidature. All other students may receive only one grant during their degree.

Recipients of the Vice-Chancellor's Travel Grant are not eligible to receive an ANU-IARU Travel Grant for the same study experience.

Students attending an IARU GSP course are not eligible to receive an ANU-IARU Travel Grant for this study experience.

Students attending an IARU partner for semester exchange are not eligible to receive an ANU-IARU Travel Grant for this study experience.

How to apply

Students intending to apply must complete the travel grant application form and submit it at least two weeks prior to travel and no more than three months prior. Approval will not be given for travel that has already commenced or has been completed.

The application must be:

  • accompanied by a one-page (maximum) statement outlining the purpose and objectives of the proposed visit
  • signed by the relevant academic staff indicated on the application form
  • accompanied by evidence of registration, if attending a conference
  • accompanied by written confirmation from the host university if engaging in a study program, which is
    • agreeing to the student's visit and explaining their status at the IARU partner university
    • providing information on supervisory arrangements (where applicable).

Further information

Within thirty days of completion of the travel, the student must submit their completed proof of completion and travel report form. PhD candidates must have this report signed by their supervisor.

The purpose of this report is to enable ANU to collate information on activities undertaken by ANU students at IARU partner universities and to assess the benefits of the travel grant to study and research.

Failure to submit the report within thirty days of completion of travel may result in the second instalment of the travel grant being withheld.

The report will still be required even if thirty days have elapsed.
