Travel Grants

To broaden participation at the 2nd Australasian FASD Conference a limited number of Travel Grants will be awarded to subsidise the cost of conference attendance. Recipients of the travel subsidies must be prepared to attend the full 2 days of the conference, be available to meet the sponsor and have photos taken for later inclusion in media and promotion by both FASD Research Australia Centre of Research Excellence and the sponsor, and provide feedback to the Organising Committee following the conference.

Travel Grants can only be used to cover registration, travel and accommodation costs for the FASD 2018 Conference. The amount of the travel grant will be determined by the applicant’s place of residence (information available on the application form).

Grants are not open to Commonwealth, State or Territory Government employees.
