2020 Trans-Tasman Exchange Scholarship

For Fellows and Trainees

Posted 6 days ago


Applications are invited for the 2020 Trans-Tasman Exchange Scholarship.

The Trans-Tasman Exchange Scholarship was established by the New Zealand Dermatological Society (NZDSI) and the Australasian College of Dermatologists in 2001 to enable attendance at each association’s Annual Scientific Meeting.

The scholarship is available in 2020 for a trainee enrolled in the College training program to attend the NZDSI Annual Conference, which will be held in Queenstown, New Zealand from 5 to 9 August 2020.

The scholarship meets the cost of one return economy class airfare between the recipient’s home city and Queenstown and for accommodation during the meeting. The total value of the scholarship will not exceed $AUD2,000. The registration fee of the NZDSI Annual Conference will be waived.

Please note that the recipient is required to present a paper at the meeting and to provide the College with a report of the meeting on return.

The closing date for submission of abstracts is 31 December 2019. Please see the abstract guidelines.

If you wish to be considered for this scholarship, you will need to apply online. Applications should include a letter to the Scientific Meeting Steering Committee, setting out reasons as to why they should be selected and a copy of their abstract.
