Bursaries

The CAA Bursary Scheme is intended to provide financial assistance to students, early career researchers and low income professionals or those from less affluent regions. Bursaries are intended to encourage participation in the annual CAA conference and help sustain the expansion of the CAA community.

43 bursaries, ranging between AUS$75 (c. $65 or €55) and AUS$410.00 (c. $365 or €315), were awarded for CAA2013 in Perth.

Preference is given to applicants who are active contributors to the CAA community, typically by presenting a paper/poster or by chairing a session. Applications are also welcome from new members of the CAA community who wish to attend CAA for the first time in order to advance their future academic research or career prospects.

It is expected that applicants for bursaries will have sought additional funding from other sources.

Applicants should explain why they are requesting a bursary and clearly state other sources of funding for which they have applied. They should also provide a current CV and proof of their student/employment status*.

All application materials should be submitted in English.
Key dates for applications to the CAA Bursary Scheme are outlined below:

  • Open: 23rd December 2013;
  • Deadline: 15th January 2014 28th January 2014;
  • Notification: 8th February 2014 21st February 2014.
