Vice Chancellor's Global Mobility Scholarship

Students nominated to a semester exchange or eligible short-term global mobility program will automatically be considered for a Vice Chancellor’s Global Mobility Scholarship under one of the following categories.

Super Partner Scholarships

Students will receive a VCGM Scholarship of $2000 if accepted into the semester exchange program at one of our seven Super Exchange Partners:

Where the number of students nominated to these destinations exceeds the existing funding, academic merit will be used to determine the scholarship recipients.

Academic Merit Scholarships

Students accepted into the semester exchange program at all other exchange partner universities will be considered for a Vice Chancellor's Global Mobility Scholarship based on academic merit valued at $1500.To be eligible for the VCGM Scholarship, you must have achieved an overall average mark of 70.00% or above taking into account all marks obtained in your current course (including internal transfer credit) up to the time of your exchange nomination.

Short-term Scholarships

Selected short-term global mobility programs offer scholarships of $1500 for selected students. Scholarships will be promoted in the program brochure under the Finances tab > Scholarships. Other students accepted to participate in a short-term global mobility program through the Global Mobility Database and who have achieved an overall Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 70 or above will receive a VCGM Scholarship of $1000.

Selection for the Vice Chancellor’s Global Mobility Scholarships occurs:
  • upon nomination to the semester exchange program.

Students will be automatically considered and successful scholarship recipients will be notified by email.

Students may only receive one scholarship per semester/year exchange or short-term global mobility program and are not eligible for a second scholarship if they extend their one-semester exchange for an additional semester at the same partner university. Students are not eligible for a Vice Chancellor's Global Mobility Scholarship if they are in receipt of another travelling scholarship or grant for the same program.
