Travel grants enable outstanding individuals, with promising careers and potentially important contributions to make to the Australian community, to exchange knowledge with their peers through participation in professional development opportunities.
In particular, the program enables promising early-career academics and researchers to present their work at international conferences and exchange knowledge with their peers through participation in professional development opportunities.
Most grants made in this program area range from $2,000 – $3,000.
Generally the travel destination is outside Australia. In some instances, if a strong case is made for travel within Australia for a particular professional development opportunity, the application may be considered.
Generally, an early career researcher is considered to be within five years of completing a PhD.
