Joint 10th ASSCR/AGCTS Conference, Sydney, 24-26 May 2017

Conference Travel Awards available for Postgraduate students/ECRs

The National Stem Cell Foundation of Australia (NSCFA) together with the ASSCR is generously sponsoring a large number of Postgraduate students and ECRs to attend and present their research at the 10th Annual meeting of the ASSCR. These Awards will contribute to the cost of attending the meeting and are available to all students and ECRs who are members of the ASSCR. Applicants from NSW will be eligible for limited travel funding (e.g., to reimburse car or bus travel costs).


To be eligible, Postgraduate students and ECRs need to be members of the ASSCR and you must submit your abstract by Friday 24th February 2017, regardless of whether you are requesting a poster or oral as these abstracts will be peer reviewed.

Application process

Applicants can become an ASSCR Member now or during the abstract submission process. All applicants must also complete the application form for travel awards and presentation prizes and provide a photograph which also needs to be uploaded to the website by Friday 24th February 2017.

Please complete all sections of the form and provide signatures from both the applicant and supervisor.

NOTE: Early career researcher (ECR) is defined as someone whose graduation date is less than 6 years from the last date of the conference (24th May, 2017).
