Travel grants for postgraduates
IAG Travel Grants for Postgraduate Members
The IAG supports the active participation of its postgraduate members. To further this aim the IAG provides travel grants to assist eligible Research Higher Degree students to attend the annual IAG National Conference. The following describes the selection criteria and application process for postgraduate members of the IAG who wish to apply for funding to attend:
* The Institute’s Annual Conference in Brisbane, 11-14 July, 2017.
Eligibility criteria and award conditions:
You must be:
- a current financial member of the IAG (Note: Eligible applications from student members outside Australia will be considered);
- enrolled on the date you apply for funding in either a Masters degree (Research) or a Doctoral degree;
- presenting a paper at the conference; and
- registered to attend the conference for its full duration.
Grant recipients must write a 500 word report for the IAG Council. The report should outline your participation in the conference, your reflections on the conference and detail how you spent the grant money. Your report should be submitted to the Vice-President (Past President), Prof Steve Turton email@example.com within 90 days of the conclusion of the conference. Reports may be reproduced in part or full in the IAG Newsletter.
How to apply for funding:
You must complete the Postgraduate Travel Grant Application Form 2017 and email it to IAG Vice President Assoc Prof Beverley Clarke firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday 15 May 2017. In the subject line of your email please write “IAG Postgraduate Travel Grant Application for the IAG conference for [your name]”.
You must also attach:
(i) evidence of your registration at the conference;
(ii) advice of the acceptance of your paper (where available);
(iii) a copy of your paper’s abstract and title; and
(iv) proof of your enrolment in either a Masters degree (Research) or a Doctoral degree.
Travel grants are awarded at the discretion of the IAG Council. Whilst the total sum awarded is generous, the amount of each individual grant will vary depending on the number and location of applicants as a tiered system of funding is employed according to distance travelled to and from the event. In previous years individual grants have rarely exceeded several hundred dollars per applicant. Students are encouraged to pursue other sources of funding support if required.
