Applications have opened for Wine Australia travel bursaries for travel commencing between 1 July 2020 and 30 June 2021

Applications close Friday 24 April 2020 at 5pm (Australian Central Time).

Due to ongoing developments with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we recommend that students and researchers consult their university/workplace and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's current guidelines on international travel.

Travel bursaries

Travel bursaries can support international travel for conference attendance and/or study tours to develop knowledge and skills aligned with the research priorities of the Australian grape and wine sector and to provide professional development opportunities for early career researchers. See our application guidelines for further details.


Visiting scholar bursaries

Wine Australia invites and assesses applications for visiting scholar bursaries throughout the year. Visiting scholar bursaries can bring international experts to Australia to participate in workshops, meetings, conferences, symposia or research projects. See our application guidelines for further details.


How to apply

To apply for a Wine Australia travel bursary, you must complete an application online through the Clarity Investment Management System (CIMS). If you have not used CIMS before, a log in and password can be obtained by emailing your full name, address, contact phone number and name of affiliated organisation to applications@wineaustralia.com.

Wine Australia will consider applications that support international travel for conference attendance and/or study tours that align with our RD&E priority areas, with the two-fold purpose of:

  • demonstrating benefit to the Australian grape and wine sector and/or existing research, and
  • supporting careers for grape and wine researchers in the sector and academia by providing opportunities to broaden their professional development, particularly early in their career. 

Please consult the Wine Australia Strategic Plan 2015–2020 and the application guidelines for both the travel and visiting scholar bursaries when developing applications.
