Postgraduate Bursaries

Thanks to the generosity of the RSAA, there will be four postgraduate/early career bursaries available for RSAA 2019. Recipients of the bursaries must be presenting at the 2019 conference and be RSAA members at the time of the conference.

The four bursaries are:

  1. The RSAA Bursary (AUD$750)
  2. The William Christie Bursary (AUD$750)
  3. The Angela Dunstan Bursary (AUD$750)
  4. The RSAA International Students Bursary (AUD$1,500).


To apply for these bursaries, please send a 2-page CV along with your abstract to by 30 June 2019. Please ensure that your CV includes: a) your current enrolment status, dissertation topic, and supervisor’s name (if you are a postgraduate student); or b) your current employment status, full history of publications and grants, and a statement from your institution or a former supervisor to confirm that you do not have access to institutional funding. You do not need to send any references or specify a bursary. Please also ensure that you have submitted an abstract for the conference (see Call for Papers).

If you are eligible for the International Students Bursary, you will automatically be considered for it. Eligible students who do not receive the International Students Bursary will automatically be considered for the remaining three bursaries.
