Postdoctoral Conference Travel Grants

Annual Awards for Post-Doctoral Scholars

 
Application closing date: COB Friday, 26 July 2019
 
The Geographical Society of NSW introduced the Post-Doctoral Scholar Awards in 2015.  The awards are targeted at early-career researchers, post-PhD submission. The aim of these Awards is to support the research program of early career geographers in their efforts to maintain research momentum, post-doctorate. There are a maximum of six (6) Annual Awards available between $500AUD and $1,500AUD for post-doctoral geography scholars.
 
Priority for these awards will be given to geographers who are otherwise ineligible for institutional internal research funding and/or who have no individual recourse to external research funding.
 
This award is intended to be used for attendance at a conference, at which the applicant will present a paper on a topic relating to geography. Successful applicants are expected to use the award within one year of its receipt.
