ASTSS STUDENT CONFERENCE SUPPORT AWARD GUIDELINES AND APPLICATION FORM
The Australasian Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ASTSS) is pleased to offer up to two supported registrations to student presenters at its Annual Conference. The purpose of the incentive is to encourage and enhance student participation and involvement in our annual conferences.
Applicants must be currently enrolled students in an Australian or New Zealand university or other institute of higher learning. Applicants must also apply (have applied) to present the paper or poster at the conference by submission through the conference portal (www.acots.org) by the close date. The abstract must also accompany this completed application form. The substantive content of the presentation/poster must be on the area of traumatic stress. The amount of the support is set at the full conference ASTSS student member registration fee. In 2016, this amount is $499.00.
Entries close on Friday 12th August, 2016. No late entries will be accepted.
The two best applications will be selected and offered the conference registration support. Applications will be rated by an independent panel of adjudicators based on the quality and originality of the abstract. The two recipients shall be notified via telephone or email no later than Friday 26th August. ASTSS will reimburse $499 of the registration fee on behalf of each recipient. Any additional fees associated with conference attendance (travel, accommodation, additional registration fee beyond $499, conference dinner, etc) are the recipient’s responsibility. The adjudicator’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
Further information regarding the conference (including dates, speakers, workshops and prices) can be obtained from the ASTSS website at: www.astss.org.au, or the conference website: www.acots.org.
