- Your trip will benefit a marginalised or vulnerable group.
- Your trip will enhance your broader development.
- Your trip is overseas.
- You are travelling between the end of this university year to beginning of the next university year.
- You have identified and approached other sources of funding.
- You are enthusiastic and committed to travelling.
Your application for a Global Impact Award will not be considered if:
- You are travelling to your country of origin.
- You are travelling for leisure, a sports event or to an academic conference.
Please note that we will also judge your application on its overall quality.
