Eligibility and Preference Criteria

  1. Eligibility is confined to students who are enrolled in undergraduate degree programs offered by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, who are accepted to study overseas on formal University of Sydney Exchange Programs.
  2. Scholarships will be awarded at the discretion of the selection committee on the basis of merit.
  3. The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences reserves the right to specify destination regions or countries for which applications will be prioritised, based upon either (i) Faculty strategic priorities, or (ii) donor preferences. In 2013, priority will be given to students applying for exchange places in Asia (China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore). Priority areas will be reviewed on an annual basis.
    Scholarships cannot be awarded more than once to the same student. They can, however, be held in conjunction with other funding – from the University of Sydney or other institutions – to support the study abroad period. Scholarships can be used to contribute towards airfares, travel insurance, accommodation, living and other costs directly related to the overseas study.
  4. A student applying for a scholarship must be enrolled at the overseas institution for a minimum of one semester and will normally be expected to enrol in the equivalent of 24 credit points at the overseas institution.
  5. The Academic record of the applicant should demonstrate successful completion of studies to date. Only students with an average grade of 70% and above will be deemed eligible to apply for this award.
