Gordon Dowling Foundation.  

Southern Denmark University Exchange PartnershipThis scheme is an extension of the previous collaborative travel grant scheme between both universities. The new scheme allows students from each institution to spend up to a year of their PhD program with the partner institution.  For 2017, each institution will offer up to three PhD student travel awards of $15,000.  The intention is that PhD programs will be planned for commencing students around the partnership application process; however, for this first round of funding, consideration will be given to applicants already in the early stages of candidature at either institution, provided there is a pre-existing research partnership between the supervising Griffith and SDU staff. The $15,00 grant must be used as a subsidy for travel and accommodation of the PhD student. It is expected that candidates will undertake the onsite visit with the host institution during the 2nd year of their PhD. Given this, students who are in their 2nd year of their PhD in 2017 are eligible to apply for this round.  Applications are due: on a continuous basis for 2017 via 

NAVA Grants The Freedman Foundation Travelling Scholarship for Emerging Artists.

 Australia Awards–Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships offer support to Australians to undertake study, research or  professional development in a participating country and/or region.
