Student Travel Awards

Further Information

Deadline for Application is Friday, 18 October 2013    

ANS student travel awards are made to students attending the ANS meeting and are a partial contribution towards their airfare costs. Sponsorship and encouragement of student participation in the annual ANS meetings was made a priority of the society as early as the 1982 AGM. Support has grown from 3 travel awards in 1984 to 71 in 1995 and 153 awards in 2012. The travel awards have been sponsored by ANS, industry and supporting Universities.  

Awards do not provide full reimbursement but all eligible applicants will receive a travel award with the number of successful applicants therefore dictating the size of awards, which are scaled according to the distance to the Meeting location.  

Eligibility and Application Information  

Application for a travel award is made as part of the registration process. Applicants must tick a box indicating that they are applying for a travel award and also enter their supervisor’s name and email address.  

The applicant must pay a registration fee and submit an abstract to the ANS2014 Meeting on which they are listed as the first author if they are to be considered for a Student Travel Award. Full-time or part-time PhD or MSc students may apply. Honours students are not eligible to apply for travel awards. A maximum of 2 awards for attendance at ANS annual meetings may be received during a student¹s candidature. Awards must be collected in person at the Meeting and will be provided as a cheque in Australian Dollars.  

Overseas students are also eligible to apply but their reimbursement will be no greater than that received by any Australian or New Zealand Student.  

For any questions regarding the Student Travel Awards, please contact the ANS Treasurer: A/Prof Andrew Allan, Dept of Physiology,
University of Melbourne, VIC 3010


 Ten bursaries of $1,000.00 have generously been funded by the Neurotrauma Research Program of WA (NRP) to help Honours and PhD students conducting research in neurotrauma to attend the meeting. It is expected that successful students will present their work at the meeting in the form of a poster or oral presentation. The definition of neurotrauma is reasonably broad and includes stroke research.  

Applications should be made by emailing the abstract to be submitted to ANS to Lindy Fitzgerald ( by 5pm of Monday the 30th of September. Abstracts will be ranked by a panel of three researchers including a member of the NRP Executive. Successful applicants will be notified on the 2nd of October in time for registration and abstract submission by the 4th of October when early registration and abstract submission closes.
