The Australian Academy of Science is calling for applications for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Scientists Travelling Research Award and general 2020 awards round.
The Scientists Travelling Research Award recognises research in the natural sciences, allowing interdisciplinary and sociocultural research that could straddle the social sciences and humanities, by outstanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander PhD students and early- and mid-career scientists. It aims to support the expansion and growth of their research networks and international knowledge exchange through visits to relevant international centres of research.
Two annual awards of $5500 are planned, with additional support provided to attend the Academy’s Annual Science at the Shine Dome event.
The closing date for award applications is 9:00am (AEST) on Saturday 1 June 2019.
