· 258 words, 2 min read
An initiative of the Australian Academy of Science (AAS) and the Australian Geoscience Council (AGC)

Specific funding is available to provide Australian and New Zealand geoscientists in the early stages of their careers with opportunities to travel internationally to further their careers as geoscientists by, for example, undertaking field work in appropriate areas, visiting and working with appropriate international experts, inspecting appropriate mines or other geoscientific features such as type localities, contributing to professionally-organised geoscientific conferences or conventions, etc.

Applications close at the end of September each year for grants in the following year. Note that there is a special release for travel support to the 37th IGC in Busan – Applications close March 31.

You can apply through the online form here.

The anticipated value of each grant will be up to $5,000 and is intended to cover all or part of the cost of the proposed travel (including travel expenses, conference registration, and related meals and accommodation).

The Scheme is open to practicing geoscientists resident in Australia or New Zealand who hold a degree in geoscience (or equivalent). Those eligible to receive grants under the Scheme should generally be no older than 35 years, or within 10 years of receiving a PhD or commencing industry/government employment.

There is a round only for assistance to attend the IGC that is in Busan in Korea in August and the AGC would like to have as many drum beaters from Australia there as possible. The round for other international conferences will close later in the year as per normal.
