EngageAsia Travel Guarantee

The adventure of a lifetime is one thing – the adventure of a lifetime with a few thousand dollars in your pocket is another thing altogether. At the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific, we know that money does matter to students, especially when they are thinking about studying overseas. That’s why we give cash to every single one of our students leaving on our approved overseas study programs.

So how is my Travel Guarantee calculated?

Your EnagageAsia Travel Guarantee could be made up of a combination of scholarship(s), travel grants and government funding.

How much do I get?

Your grant value depends on the length of your program, but we guarantee that every student receives the below amount as a minimum.

Program Amount
Short course $500
Semester program $2,000
Year in Asia $3,000
ATAR 95+ - if you started your undergraduate degree in the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific in 2014 or later, and have an ATAR of 95+, you will receive a minimum of $5,000 for Year in Asia.

A ‘minimum’? Does that mean I could get more?

Absolutely. We guarantee the amounts listed above. You may, however, receive a larger grant, depending on whether you receive one of the scholarships below. These scholarships are competitive and are awarded on merit.

The amounts listed in the table are the total dollar amounts that you will receive, which include the value of the scholarship/travel grant plus the top up funding from the College. If you receive more than one scholarship listed in the first column, you will receive the total value of the two scholarships/travel grants, but you won’t receive any top up funding.
