The Australian Society for Parasitology offers all bona fide student members the opportunity for part reimbursement of the costs of attending the Annual Meeting of the Society. The money available varies from year to year but usually covers between 50 and 75% of the Registration, Accommodation and Travel costs. The actual amount of reimbursement depends on the costs of the Meeting and the numbers of students applying. All student members of at least 3 months standing may apply for this bursary provided they are enrolled at a recognised Australian University. Postgraduate students are eligible for up to 1 year after completion of their studies.

Please note that ASP students receiving an income of approximately $40K will receive the full travel award amount with a sliding scale inversely related to income, means-tested to a max of approximately $80K.

Enquires should be made to Lisa Jones.

To apply, first you should download the Guidelines for the 2018 ASP Student Conference Travel Grant. Once you have read the guidelines to apply for the grant, please register for the conference.
