Local students may be eligible to receive a Federal Government-funded scholarship through the Global Learning office.
These scholarships are usually limited to students participating in exchanges to particular institutions or countries.
You do not need to do anything to express interest in receiving a scholarship. All successful applicants will be considered for any scholarships for which they may be eligible.
The Taplin Indigenous Bursery for International Education
The Taplin Indigenous Bursary for International Education is funded by a grant given by Emeritus Professor John Taplin a former University of Adelaide Pro Vice-Chancellor (International) with a strong commitment to the internationalisation of higher education.
The Donor is also motivated by the pioneering ethnographic and linguistic studies undertaken by his great-grandfather, the Reverend George Taplin, with the Ngarrindjeri people whose land encompasses the lower Murray River and Lakes region of South Australia, and his unremitting advocacy on their behalf in the early years following British colonisation of this State.
Applicants must be of Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent who regard themselves as Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and who are so considered by the community in which they live or have lived.

Business and Economics Financial Incentive for Overseas Study
Business, Finance and Economics undergraduate students who will be studying short-term at selected overseas institutions may be eligible to receive a $3000 grant to support their short program. Details can be found on the Faculty of the Professions website.
What happens next?
If you have been selected to receive a scholarship, once you have been accepted by the host university you will receive an official offer of scholarship.
You will need to return the paperwork received with your offer. Once processed, the funds will be deposited directly into your bank account. Students will usually receive funds several weeks before their exchange commences, however this is subject to timely receipt of all paperwork.
If your acceptance is sent directly to you by the host university, you may need to provide the Global Learning office with evidence of your acceptance before the scholarship is offered.
