Career Development Grant

The annual TASA Career Development Grant, new to 2022, seeks to support the career development activities of TASA members where these activities are not covered by other funding.

TASA's Career Development Grant is targeted at TASA members who have limited or no access to funding for career development activities, including TASA members employed outside of academia.

Eligible career development opportunities include but are not limited to:
  • research related cost (e.g. transcription, use of interpreters, participant reimbursement, employment of a research assistant),
  • professional editing,
  • conference attendance (where this is not covered by other TASA bursaries),
  • career development activities associated with establishing / furthering a career outside of academia.
 A total of $4,500 is available, with a maximum of $1,500 available per applicant.

There is one round for applications per year:

Applications close on 20 May 2022.

Successful applicants will be announced in June 2022.

The funding can be used between 1 July 2022 until 30 June 2023.
