Australasian PhD and Early Researcher Bursaries

In addition to the SCOS Board bursaries, the Australasian Caucus of SCOS have provided money for a number of bursaries for PhD students and early researchers specifically to encourage people from Asia, Australia and New Zealand to attend the York Conference in the UK. Each bursary includes the conference registration fee, which covers full conference attendance, meals and social events. The bursary is not intended for transport and accommodation costs.
