Student Travel Grant

The Student Activities Committee of the WDA would like to announce the Student Small Travel Grants Program for the WDA-Australasian Conference. The purpose of this fund is to provide 3 free registrations to individual WDA-A student members who plan to attend the annual WDA-A conference. Students who are not WDA-A student members are NOT eligible to apply for this travel grant. The applicant review committee will award funds based on demonstrated interest and involvement in WDA/WDA-A as well as financial need. Funds will be disbursed to award recipients at the annual WDA-A conference upon confirmation of student conference registration. Students attending the conference on a travel scholarship will be asked to share their experience by giving a presentation at their home university (WDA-A Student Chapter or similar student group) during the next semester following the conference. 

Deadline for submission of the application form and a letter of support is July 30th, 2019. Applications should be sent to Marianthi Ioannidis at All student applicants will receive a notice of successful receipt of their application. Notification of awards will be made by August 15th, 2019.
