ASCEPT and APSA 2022 Student Travel Grants
In recognition of the valuable contribution of our student members, both ASCEPT and APSA are providing travel grants to support student attendance at the 2022 APSA-ASCEPT Joint Conference. To be eligible for a Student Travel Grant, students MUST be financial members of ASCEPT or APSA prior to the early bird registration deadline, Monday 24 October 2022 and have been selected to present an oral or poster communication at the Conference.
To be eligible for a Student Travel Grant, an applicant:
- must be a currently enrolled undergraduate and/or HDR student (e.g. Honours, Masters, or PhD)
- must be presenting an oral or poster communication at the conference
- must be a financial student member of ASCEPT or APSA
- must indicate that they wish to be considered for a Student Travel Grant when submitting their abstract via the online submission site
To indicate that you wish to be considered for a Student Travel Grant when submitting your abstract via the online submission site, you must tick the box beside the statement, “I wish to apply for a student travel grant” after entering your contact details.
Travel Grant applications close on Friday 9 September 2022 in conjunction with the abstract submission deadline.
*A student member is only eligible for a Student Travel Grant from EITHER ASCEPT OR APSA. If a student is a member of both associations, they will be required to indicate from which association they would like to apply for a Student Travel Grant.
You must also provide a letter of support from your Supervisor confirming your enrolment status and how you will benefit from attendance at the meeting.
For students enrolled part time please also include some explanatory information with respect to enrolment status and opportunities for support for conference attendance in the letter of support.
Part time students may be funded at the discretion of the ASCEPT Board or APSA Council.
Students applying for an APSA Travel Grant must also complete the APSA Application Form.
The level of support will be determined by the ASCEPT Board and APSA AGM and will be paid post conference, once attendance is confirmed.
Retrospective applications will not be considered and no dual reimbursements if a student is a member of both associations.
