Sometimes graduate research students may find that they are unable to embark on fieldwork overseas or attend international conferences because funding from the University will not adequately cover their costs. In these situations, the Faculty of Arts consequently can provide funding additional to the Monash Graduate Education Travel Grant scheme.
Applications for top-up grants should be submitted together with an application for the MGE travel grant no less than 4 weeks before the planned commencement of travel, to your Program Administrator.
What is funded?
A maximum of $700 may be requested by graduate research students who have successfully applied for a MGE travel grant.
Common funding approvals include, but are not limited to, airfares, conference registrations, accommodation expenses while on approved study away, hire of special equipment for research, access to archives and visa costs.
Common funding exclusions include, but are not limited to, passport renewals, vaccinations and expenses incurred not concurrent with the MGE travel grant scheme.
