The AIG Victorian Branch is offering a bursary to Third Year, Honours and Post Graduate Students studying full time for a degree in earth sciences to assist with the cost of attending conferences, workshops or field trips.
Funding is available to provide Victorian based AIG student members, who can demonstrate a need for support, with opportunities to participate in course related or professionally organised geological field trips, conferences and workshops.
The award of funding may be used for registration fees for conferences / courses / field trips and related travel expenses.
The field trip/short course/conference may be located in Australia or overseas, and must be of relevance to the applicants course.
Applicants are required to submit a proposal as a pdf document which will be assessed by a selection panel from the Victorian AIG Branch committee on an ad hoc basis.
The geoscientists who are awarded a grant will sign an agreement to use the funding for the purposes specified, a waiver indemnifying the AIG for any loss damages or injury sustained as a result of the trip/conference/course and will undertake to write a brief report (approximately one A4 page length including photo) for publication by the AIG.
Closing Date for Applications: 30 June, 2016.
