Odyssey travel is a not-for-profit organisation that's dedicated to providing a series of Scholarships to aid disadvantaged students. Our current goal is to double the number of AUD$10,000 Equity & Merit Scholarships we can offer every year through to 2016 to provide as much assistance as we are able. We are supported through our educational travel programs and your support through those helps Odyssey achieve its goals.

(TRAVPR.COM) AUSTRALIA - October 14th, 2013 - Odyssey Travel is pleased to announce that the applications for the 2014 Odyssey’s Merit & Equity Scholarships will open in November 2013 through to January 2014.

Applicants will be required to submit a means-tested application supported by their academic record and a short statement as to why they should be considered. Payments would be made for the academic year in 2014.  The grant would be open to students across Australia and New Zealand.

In 2013, the recipients of the 2013 Odyssey Travel Merit & Equity Scholarships were Hannah Ozturk, majoring in prosthetics and Zira Norman, studying law with a major in criminology. Both students have had challenging journeys to be recognised by their academic mentors as having successful careers.

Odyssey Travel is a not-for-profit organisation offering Australia and New Zealand’s most comprehensive educational tours, providing worldwide experiences for those mature travellers who are keen to blend a love of travel with a thirst for knowledge. 

Odyssey is committed to seeking to double every year the number of AUD$10,000 scholarships offered for the next 3 years through to 2016. Every year across Australia and New Zealand we provide a number of $10,000 academic scholarships to students who are academically strong but financially struggling to complete their studies. Without your collective support Odyssey cannot achieve its philanthropic objectives and is grateful for your ongoing support.

University Grants Proposal

The Odyssey University grant is focused on offering financial assistance for students, not only from lower socio-economic backgrounds, but also those who have proven academic capability and without assistance from ANZCS may be forced to withdraw from the pursuit of their educational objectives.  Applicants should have successfully completed their first year of study.  The award of grants will be based on academic merit and will be subject to a means test. Eligible applicants will be required to provide evidence of their eligibility for an AUSTUDY or ABSTUDY allowance. Applicants will be required to provide their academic record, a letter of support by an academic acquainted with their work and a short statement (one page) as to why they should be considered for a grant. For more information please email ceo@odysseytravel.com.au.

Two final year University students had a great week, this week. 

Hannah who has a course major in Prosthetics and Zira who is studying law with a major in Criminology are the recipients of the 2013 awards. Both of these two people have had challenging journeys receiving recognition from academic tutors at their respective Universities. 

It is through the people who are Odyssey Travellers, participating each year on one of the many educational travel programs, that the opportunity to provide these scholarships to students across New Zealand and Australia exists. The scholarship is awarded to those students who are in full time study, who have shown strong academic performance but have encountered financial hardship during their study program.

 To all those have travelled with Odyssey over the last few years and therefore contributed to these scholarships, we say thank you. To those who are considering or already travelling with us this year Odyssey also says thank you as you are contribution will be contributing to scholarships for the 2014 academic year and making a difference to the next group of students pursuing their goals. 

Odyssey’s Academic scholarships have a value of AUD$10,000 each.   Applications are called for from November to January each year.
