Travel subsidies for students and Indigenous people


  • Full-time or part-time student with a limited income (e.g. Student Stipend or part-time work only).
  • Must be a senior author and present a paper (spoken or poster). The amount of money available for subsidies is limited and in years where application numbers are high preference will be given to those students presenting spoken papers over poster papers and who register for the full conference.
  • To be eligible to receive the full subsidy of 50% of travel costs (to a maximum of $500) the applicant must have been a member of AWMS for at least two years at the time of the conference.
  • Applicants who have been a member for a year or less are eligible for a subsidy of 25% of their travel costs to a maximum of $250.
  • Applications for a subsidy must be endorsed by the student’s supervisor.
  • Students should register for the entire conference to be awarded a subsidy.

Indigenous People
Travel subsidies and registration for indigenous people will be considered (as per students) where indigenous delegates cannot get full support from their member organisation and where it is considered desirable for them to attend a specific symposium. If appropriate to their circumstances, free registration may be considered. Subsidies will be considered where applicants can:

  • Identify themselves as an indigenous person of Australia or New Zealand (other countries will also be considered)
  • Are involved in wildlife management in that country
  • Will present a paper (spoken or poster) or have experiences relevant to a conference symposium.

In years where the application for subsidies are high preference will be given to those people whose experience is most relevant to the symposia planned for the conference.

Application for subsidies should be made in writing, by email to:
