We are offering a large number of travel grants for early career researchers (students and postdocs with less than 6 years’ research experience since graduation) who submit a poster abstract.
The following travel grants are available:
- Local – $75 (refund of registration)
- Interstate, NZ - $400 (refund of registration + $325)
- International - $1000 (refund of registration + $925)
We have funding for 6 x local, 12 x interstate/NZ and 6 x international ECRs. If a category is undersubscribed, then we will transfer the funding to other categories (so there may be more than 6 x local grants available, for example). 50% of each category is reserved for women.
Payment will be made to successful applicants on provision of receipts for travel expenses (fares, accommodation, meals); registration will be refunded automatically.
Selection will be based on the abstract submitted. We will be choosing travel grant recipients on a rolling basis, so early submission will be an advantage.
Students will also be eligible for student prizes, which will be awarded based on their poster pitch and poster (1st prize: $500, 2nd prize: $200, 3rd prize: $100).
The symposium will include a networking session to allow you to meet keynote speakers, experienced researchers and other early career researchers.
