International Travel Awards
The International Travel Awards provide support for ID or Microbiology trainees to attend an international infectious diseases meeting.
All advanced trainees who are training in infectious diseases or microbiology with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) or the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA) and who have ASID Associate membership, are eligible to apply (except previous winners). Submissions are judged on the basis of trainees previous year's Project Report, submitted to the RACP or RCPA. This year there are 3 International Travel Awards available.
Applicants must advise the secretariat if they receive any other funding for this trip before or during their application.
Awardees will receive up to $3,500 in reimbursements, to support their attendance at an international infectious diseases meeting. Reimbursements include an economy class return airfare (one per each award), accommodation, and registration. Receipts will be required to claim reimbursement of actual expenses and currency of each claim should be clarified.
Applicants should email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org :
- letter of application;
- current CV;
- copy of previous year’s Project Report submitted to RACP or RCPA;
- a statement, signed by the supervisor, outlining the contribution of the trainee to the project.
