Postgraduate Travel Grant
The IAG provides travel grants to assist eligible Research Higher Degree students to attend the annual IAG conference.
Eligibility criteria and award conditions
To be eligible for an IAG Postgraduate Travel Grant you must be:
- a current financial member of the IAG
- (Note: applications from student members outside Australia will be considered);
- enrolled in either a Masters degree (Research) or a Doctoral degree on the date you apply for funding;
- presenting a paper at the conference; and
- registered to attend the conference for its full duration.
- prepared to submit a 500 word ‘reflection’ report for the IAG Council
Travel grants are awarded at the discretion of the IAG Council. The amount of each individual grant will vary depending on the number and location of applicants as a tiered system of funding is employed. It takes into consideration the distance an applicant must travel to and from the conference. Individual grants have rarely exceeded several hundred dollars per applicant. Students are encouraged to pursue other sources of funding support if required.
To apply complete the IAG Postgraduate Travel Grant Application
A condition of the grant is that recipients write a 500 word report for the IAG Council, post conference. The report should outline the grant recipient's participation in the conference, and reflections on the conference. Reports should be submitted to the Vice-President (Outgoing President) within 30 days of the conclusion of the conference. The report may be reproduced in the IAG Newsletter.
Students who have been successful in applying for an IAG postgraduate travel grant, and who have paid for their conference registration, but find they do not have sufficient funds (and will therefore no longer be attending the conference), can apply for a refund of the conference registration fee. Please contact conference organisers to seek the registration refund, and contact the IAG Treasurer for details as to how to return the postgraduate travel grant to the IAG.
