Vice-Chancellor's Conference care and support fund
Deakin values collaboration and recognises its importance in advancing research and research careers.
Attendance at national and international conferences is integral to fostering new and maintaining existing networks.
The Vice-Chancellor's Conference Care Support fund provides up to $2000 to assist researchers and Higher Degree Research (HDR) students who would otherwise be unable to attend local or international conferences, workshops or symposia due to carer responsibilities.
Funding can be used for travel for a carer/family member to accompany the researcher/HDR student or to pay for additional care costs whilst the primary carer is attending a conference, workshop or symposia.
Applications should be submitted at least 4 weeks prior to travel.
