The aim of the grant is to assist a NCEPH student (primary supervisor/Chair of panel is an NCEPH staff member), to travel to a national or international conference in pursuit of the student’s academic goals.
The funds for this grant come from an endowment made in 2001 to The Australian National University’s Endowment for Excellence by Emeritus Professor Peter Baume AO, Chancellor of the University.
To be eligible for consideration, the applicant must be a student who is primarily affiliated with NCEPH, i.e. the primary supervisor/Chair of Panel is an NCEPH staff member.
The grant is open to Masters and PhD students at NCEPH, i.e. their primary supervisor is an NCEPH staff member.
Only in exceptional circumstances is a successful applicant eligible to apply again.
In the event that a student withdraws from the course during the travel period, the Committee will decide whether it is appropriate for the student to make a pro rata repayment of grant monies awarded.
How to apply
Due to the difficulty of planning conference travel in advance, and to ensure the grant best supports the needs of students, applications will be open throughout each calendar year. The NCEPH Head will advise students once the first application has been received, and invite additional applications. At this time the NCEPH Head will determine an appropriate closing date and will advise students accordingly.
