Endeavour Mobility Grants for Short-term Projects
UQ staff are encouraged to submit short-term mobility project applications for the 2017 round of the Endeavour Mobility Grants.
Endeavour Mobility Grants complement the New Colombo Plan by supporting global study in further locations and for postgraduate as well as undergraduate students.
In 2017 approximately $3.2 million in funding available for Australian tertiary education providers to support Australian undergraduate and postgraduate students to have an overseas study experience that contributes to their Australian qualification. Example activities include: practicums or clinical placements; paid or unpaid internships or work placements; professional entry programmes; research; short-term study; and volunteer projects.
There are two short-term mobility programs applicable to UQ students through the Endeavour scheme, which if successful, will provide funding of up to $2000 per student for up to 10 students. A Project Facilitation Subsidy of $1500 per project is also available to assist with costs associated with managing approved projects.
Funding is available to support projects undertaken between 1 January 2017 and 31 January 2018.
The Study Overseas Short-term Mobility Programme (STMP) provides short-term grants for undergraduate and postgraduate students to undertake study overseas that is for academic credit or is otherwise a mandatory component of the student’s course. STMP grants may be used to support students to participate in short-term (less than six months) projects in a relevant field or course of study.
For undergraduate study, STMP grants can be used for projects in global locations excluding Asia and the Pacific. For postgraduate study, STMP grants can be used for global locations excluding Asia.
