Travel Support for Students Presenting at Annual and Associated Conferences


An amount up to $300 per student will be available to support students of the Australian Society for Biophysics who attend the annual conference and present a paper, and who reside outside the city in which the conference is being held. This amount will be determined by the ASB Executive from time to time.

This travel support is intended to encourage students to attend the annual meetings of the Australian Society for Biophysics; it will emphasise the importance of students giving presentations about their work; and it will provide students with a small example of ways of obtaining funding to support their research efforts. If students are not members of the Society, they must join at the time of this application. Details are available here.


To apply, please use the following form . Please fill in the form including details and signature of your Supervisor.


The final deadline of two weeks prior to the start of the annual conference is firm. However, if a student wishes to know whether his or her application is successful, prior to confirming travel arrangements, then this form should be lodged with the Secretary two months before the conference. Applications should include details of the full cost of travel, including air fares, registration, transfer fares, accommodation, and conference dinner if that is not included in the conference registration fee. All support obtained, or applied for, from all other sources must be listed, or an explanation as to why there is no other support available should be given. A copy of the abstract that has been or will be submitted to the conferene should be sent together with the application form.
Successful applicants will be requested to provide the society with a brief report of the meeting and their participation within 2 months of the conclusion of the meeting.


The completed form should be faxed or emailed to the ASB Secretary
