AIATSIS funds help with Conference expenses PDF Print E-mail

THE council of the Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies has agreed to make funds available for limited support to attend major international conferences held outside Australia.

Support will take the form of a subsidy towards conference attendance, not funding in full, with the amount of subsidy to be determined on merit. Support will be restricted to individuals.

The following conditions apply:

  • Applicants should be presenting a paper at the conference.
  • The paper should make a significant contribution to Australian Indigenous studies.
  • Applicants should provide written or other evidence that they have approached their own, or other institution/s for funding.
  • Successful applicants should provide a copy of their paper or a written report to the Director of Research on their return to Australia, for deposit in the Institute library.

There are two closing dates for applications: 15 March and 31 August annually.

Applicants will be informed of the outcome within 8 weeks of the deadline, for conference support applications.
