JDRF Australia: Travel Grants 2018 (Round 2)

JDRF provides grants of up to $2,000 for domestic travel, and up to $4,000 for international travel to early stage scientists, mid-career researchers and allied health/nursing professionals. The awards are designed to provide funding for travel to research institutions or scientific meetings, for the purpose of furthering the recipient’s expertise in type 1 diabetes research or management.

Travel Grants Available

Three categories of Travel Grants are available:

Early Stage Scientist Travel Grants for medical and science graduates who are undertaking type 1 diabetes research, and researchers in the early stage of their career (PhD students or not more than 5 years post-doctoral as of the current Travel Grant round deadline).

Mid-Career Researcher Travel Grants to support mid-career medical or science researchers (more than five years post-doctoral as of the current Travel Grant round deadline) excluding associate professors and above, with no other access to travel funding.

To be eligible to apply for a mid-career researcher Travel Grant, the applicant is required to obtain a letter from their institution confirming that their institution does not provide travel funding for mid-career researchers. If you experience any difficulties in obtaining this letter, please contact Dr Julia Warning, Scientific Manager on (02) 9020 6105 to discuss.

A maximum of two mid-career researcher Travel Grants are awarded per round.

Allied Health and Nursing Travel Grants for allied health or nursing professionals or students, enrolled in a post graduate research program, whose research will impact on the lives of people with type 1 diabetes and their carers and families.
