Student Bursaries

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. The ASB Executive will determine the amount provided to a student based on the budget provided, available funds and the number of bursary applications.
