James Wolfensohn Travelling Scholarship

This one-semester scholarship, which is worth $5000, is awarded annually to a full-time student who is an Australian citizen enrolled in the later years of an undergraduate degree (excluding honours). Proposed studies must be approved by the faculty concerned and count towards the applicant's degree. Preference will be given to students who wish to undertake their studies at an institution in Asia. The scholarship was established by donations received to mark the occasion when James Wolfensohn, one of the University’s most distinguished alumni, was conferred an honorary degree of Doctor of Science in Economics in September 1997. Its aim is to promote international understanding and advance the academic development of students by enabling them to spend part of their degree in an approved overseas institution where they will undertake studies. Applications are assessed on the basis of academic merit, purpose/appropriateness of the intended study, and contribution the overseas experience will make to the applicant's personal and professional development.

Applications have now closed for the scholarships that takes effect in 2015.
