Give Now - Helen Bearpark Scholarship
This scholarship commemorates Dr Helen Bearpark who was tragically killed in a road accident in the United States in December 1996.
The purpose of this scholarship is to facilitate international travel and exchange in order to develop skills in sleep research or clinical sleep medicine. The scholarship is not aimed at allowing individuals to travel to conferences or move overseas for employment (e.g., postdoctoral positions greater than 12 months in duration) but rather to visit institutions in order to develop new or extend previously acquired skills.
The applicant must be a current ASA or ASTA member. The scholarship may be available to a non ASA or ASTA member residing outside of Australia or New Zealand who wishes to travel to an institution(s) in Australia or New Zealand for similar purposes, provided the proposed supervisor is an ASA or ASTA member of at least two years. The maximum amount awarded for each project is $AUD7,500.
