Regional and/or interstate applicants from an AMSI Member Institution may be eligible to apply for a grant to assist with the costs of travel, accommodation and/or caring responsibilities to attend the school.

Accommodation for students who are successful with their grant application will be located at Emanuel College, which is a local student accommodation provider close to The University of Queensland campus, and a short distance away from the Brisbane CBD by public transport.

Please note: Grant applications only cover travel and accommodation expenses/arrangements for the applicant only (unless grant funding for dependents has been expressly requested in the application). Any student wishing to bring partners and/or dependents must contact the Winter School Director prior to completing their grant application form.

There is a single application form which covers both the Travel Grants and CHOOSEMATHS Grants.

Before applying for a grant, we strongly recommend reading the information on the following webpages:

Applicants must also submit the AMSI Winter School 2018 Application Form, as well as the School FEE via UQPay payment gateway (which you will be redirected to when an application form is submitted). A Grant Application may not be accepted without receipt of both the above mentioned form and payment of the fee.
