The aim of Beat Cancer Project Travel Grants is to offset the costs of travel and accommodation for early-career South Australian Cancer Researchers (PhD and Masters research students, postdoctoral fellows and other early-career researchers, no more than 5 years post-doctoral) who have been invited to present their work at a national or international scientific meeting, or who can show that attendance at such meetings would have a direct positive impact on their career.
The scheme is also available to early-career researchers who wish to undertake short-term study at a national or international location.
Funding & Duration
Funding is available at up to $10,000 per applicant to support short-term exchange arrangements, and up to $2,500 to support conference attendance and travel.
Eligible applications may come from across the research spectrum, including biomedical, clinical, health-services and population-health research. Applicants should be PhD and Masters research students, postdoctoral fellows and other early-career researchers, no more than 5 years post-doctoral.
Recipients of the last Beat Cancer Project Travel Grant funding round (2016) are not eligible to apply in the current (2017) round.
Funding will not support individuals or institutions that receive support directly or indirectly from, or are involved with organisations that are part of or funded by, the tobacco industry.
The travel must be undertaken for the stated purpose and completed within 12 months from the date of award.
