Student Conference Support Scheme

Support for Student Presentations at Conferences

Asia Pacific international College has some limited funds to support students who wish to present the results of research conducted at APIC at conferences. The funds can be used towards the costs of registration at the conference, an air fare to and from the venue and / or accommodation to a maximum of $300. Applicants must be current students or recent graduates of the College (within twelve (12) months of completion of the degree) who have a paper accepted for presentation at a recognised professional or academic conference.

It is a requirement of funding that the student is identified as being affiliated with Asia Pacific International College in all correspondence with the conference organisers and will be listed in the official program as being affiliated with Asia Pacific International College. The student and supervisor must also be prepared to submit the abstract and information about the conference to the marketing section of the College, that it may be used in any information campaign about the College and group that may be deemed appropriate.

Application Process

Students should consult with their supervisor regarding the possible presentation and conference and they should, together with the supervisor, prepare an abstract according to the requirements of the conference which they wish to attend. The acceptance of the abstract for presentation is a condition of application for funding.

While the supervisor would normally be a co-author on the conference presentation, the student must attend the conference and present the paper to be eligible for College funding.

To apply for funding the student must:

  1. Complete the application form with all requested information and attach:
    1. proof that the paper has been accepted for presentation at the conference (such as correspondence from the conference organisers)
    2. Documents to justify requested funding (such as information about registration costs or travel costs).
  2. Submit the form through the website OR download and complete an editable PDF copy of the form and email with attachments to [email protected].

The application will be considered by the College Research and Scholarship Committee. Applications must be made in a timely manner that enables a proper consideration of the abstract and the value and importance of the conference proposed. Applicants will receive a response within ten days of the application being received.
