Scholarship Applications are now open!

Scholarships are available for presenters from developing countries and students without institutional support in the Asia-Pacific region. Scholarships will cover round-trip airfare, transport to and from Brisbane International Airport, conference registration, accommodation, and meals over the duration of the conference. Please note that visa costs won't be covered.

When applying for scholarship support, you will need to supply your contact information, school or institute of affiliation, student status, a one-page curriculum vitae (CV), and statements of justification for scholarship support. You do not need to submit an abstract at this time.

Applicants will be selected based on financial need, professional development opportunity, and social equity. SCCS Australia is committed to promoting diversity in conference representativeness, and we encourage students of all nationalities, ethnicities, gender identities, and sexual orientations to apply.
