OTW2014 Travel support

Student travel support

Thanks to generous sponsorship from AAL and the Australian government's Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy, we were able to offer travel subsidies (a few hundred dollars per person) to some student participants enrolled at an Australian institution. Applicants were asked to send a proposed budget, together with details of any financial support sought or committed by their home institution or other funding sources, to Caroline Foster by Friday 28 February 2014. All applicants were advised of the level of subsidy available on 7 March. Applicants needed to have their costs met by their home institution, which then invoice invoiced AusGO (with receipts) for the amount of the subsidy awarded.
