Deadline: June 30, 2018
The purpose of the SMAANZ Student Travel Assistance (STA) program is to assist students in attending the student workshop held as a part of the annual SMAANZ conference.
The student workshop provides an opportunity for students to: (1) develop a network of colleagues to assist in the transition into the SMAANZ community; (2) share their research with their peers; and, (3) provide professional development opportunities through sessions led by senior academic staff on topics of interest to students.
The STA program can award a maximum of five $200 (AUD) awards per year with SMAANZ reserving the right to provide fewer than five awards.
