Conference Scholarship for TASA Members with Disabilities

Applications for the 2017 conference scholarship will open soon.

About the Award

This scholarship is an acknowledgement that members with disabilities incur additional costs when attending TASA Conferences. The aim of the scholarship is to help defray these additional costs and promote participation by members with disabilities in TASA Conferences.

Duration

The scholarship will be offered from 2011 and will be reviewed every 5 years.

Prize

  • Registration for the annual conference
  • A certificate for receipt of scholarship

Eligibility Criteria

Those eligible for consideration for the scholarship will meet the following criteria:

  • Self-identification as a member with disabilities who incurs additional costs to attend TASA Conferences
  • First-named author of a paper presented at the TASA Conference (if postgraduate student)
  • Current financial member of TASA
  • Agree to submit a brief profile of their work/career to be published in Nexus/TASA Blog.

Selection Panel

The selection panel will normally consist of the Vice President (convenor) and Postgraduate Member.

Selection Criteria

The selection panel will give equal weight to the academic merit of the paper/abstract and the demonstrated need for the scholarship. Priority will be given to applicants who have not previously received this award.

Application Procedure

  • Nominations must be made on the official nomination form available in Word (53kb) and Pdf (151kb).
  • All applicants need to be TASA members
  • Abstracts must be submitted by the deadlines set by the Conference Local Organising Committee (LOC). Please make sure you double check this date, on the conference web page, in case the deadline is brought forward.
  • Up to five scholarships may be awarded each year.
  • Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by early October. This will allow enough time for those nominees who were not successful to register for the conference at the ‘Early Bird’ rate.
  • The decision of the selection panel is final.
  • All TASA awards and prizes are subject to the provisions of the TASA Dispute Resolution Procedures.
  • Successful applicants will have their conference registration paid by the TASA Office in the year the scholarship is awarded. This funding is not transferable to future conferences.
