Emerging Researchers in Ageing (ERA) offering 100 x $100 2020 Conference Bursaries

Emerging Researchers in Ageing (ERA), who collaborate closely with the AAG Student and Early Career Group, are offering 100 bursaries for students and emerging researchers to subsidise the cost of the 2020 AAG Conference registration - each bursary is valued at $100.

ERA has generously agreed to financially support students and emerging researchers to participate in the 53rd AAG Conference, following the cancellation of the annual ERA Conference (which is usually immediately prior to the AAG Conference) due to Covid-19.

As part of the support, we are pleased to announce that 100 bursaries are available to subsidise the cost of AAG conference registration for emerging researchers - each bursary is valued at $100 (off the standard rate) - Bringing eligible applications back inline to the discounted pricing of Early Bird Rates.

ie. Student Standard Member rate for Digital Pass is $199, less ERA Bursary = $99

This is in recognition that students and early career researchers are being particularly impacted by the ongoing effects of the pandemic and hope that subsidised registration will assist emerging researchers to participate in the AAG Conference.

Eligibility Criteria.

~ Registrations that have registered for the Standard Rate Digital pass only (already discounted registrations (e.g. early bird / 'September special') are not eligible for further subsidy)

~ Full-time and part-time postgraduate or undergraduate students actively working towards a degree or certificate in an area of study involving a major emphasis on ageing.

~ Early career researchers and/or practitioners – Those that are FIVE years post-PhD completion or in the first FIVE years of employment while members transition from study to work.

Please forward this opportunity on to students and early career researchers and networks as relevant.

The number of subsidised places is strictly limited, so we encourage students and emerging researchers to apply now. Click here to apply.
