Funding Opportunities

Wine Australia travel and visiting scholar bursary applications close 6 October 

Wine Australia is inviting applications for its travel and visiting scholar bursaries, for travel commencing between 1 January and 30 June 2018.

Each year, Wine Australia invests in travel bursaries and visiting scholar bursaries with applications open every six months.

Travel bursaries

Travel bursaries can fund travel, study tours or conferences to develop your knowledge and skills in your area of research, and to network with the international research community. See application guidelines for further details.

Visiting scholar bursaries

Visiting scholar bursaries can bring international experts to Australia to participate in workshops, meetings, conferences, symposia or research projects. See application guidelines for further details.

How to apply

Applications must be lodged through Wine Australia’s online project management tool CIMS.

If you have not used CIMS before, please contact us at for a username, password and how-to guide.

Applications should focus on the anticipated benefits for the Australian wine sector and/or existing research. They should highlight both the professional development benefit and the mechanism for dissemination of knowledge to the sector. Relationships between the proposed travel and current or potential research and development (R&D) should be clearly explained.

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

Applications close 6 October 2017 at 5pm (Australian Central Daylight Time).
