‘Studying overseas is a life-changing experience; one that all students

should have access to, regardless of their background or socioeconomic


Emeritus Professor Di Yerbury, Chair of the Board of Directors


Enter the Study Overseas Foundation, a registered Australian charity whose mission is

dedicated to providing these opportunities for Australian students.


Tertiary students are our future leaders; our future doctors, lawyers, scientists, teachers and

writers. Allowing them the experience of furthering their education and networking with

students in other countries will facilitate their personal and academic growth, not to mention

foster international relationships. This, in turn, benefits our society and economy.


The Study Overseas Foundation offers travel grants for Australian students and accepts

donations from individuals, companies and organisations. At a cocktail event on Monday, 16

June, The Study Overseas Foundation announced the details of its first round of

scholarships, as well as new partnerships that will deliver tens of thousands of dollars of

scholarships to students over the coming years.


Do you know a student that shows leadership potential, academic merit and a thirst for

furthering their studies?


The Study Overseas Foundation’s initial scholarship round provides five students with a

$1000 grant across these categories:

• Business leadership

• Leadership in community or international development

• Leadership in the sciences


Students applying for this scholarship must be an Australian citizen and/or permanent

resident, living and studying in Australia, enrolled in a non-research degree at an Australian

university and be over 18 years of age. Applications open on Friday 20th June and close at

11.59pm on Friday, 15 August.
