The objectives of the Beat Cancer Project are to increase funding for cancer research, increase the capacity for researchers to attract more national and international research grants, and build
a stronger cancer research workforce and broader research infrastructure in South Australia.
Travel Grants are intended to offset the costs of travel and accommodation for early-career South Australian Cancer Researchers 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 to fund travel costs to undertake short-term study/exchange at a national or international location.
Up to $10,000 is available 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/Masters Research students, or other early-career researchers who are no more than 5 years post-doctoral.
Recipients of the last Beat Cancer Project Travel Grant funding round (2017) are not eligible to apply in the current (2018) round.
The travel must be undertaken for the stated purpose and completed within 12 months from the date of award.
