The University has established the Overseas Field Trip Grant to provide funding towards overseas field trips for competent postgraduate research students whose theses would be greatly improved by the opportunity to undertake research and collection of data which is inaccessible in Australia.
The Overseas Field Trip Grant does NOT fund field trips that are essential to the thesis. Funds to cover essential aspects of the study, including field trips, must be budgeted for as a condition of admission to candidature. The Overseas Field Trip Grant funds are intended to support opportunities that arise in the course of study, and will significantly enhance the quality of the thesis.

Applicants for the Overseas Field Trip Grant must be:
