ANZAED/AED Early Career Travel Scholarship
This award is for early career investigators who are ANZAED members, who have an Abstract accepted at the annual International Conference on Eating Disorders (ICED), hosted by the international Academy of Eating Disorders (AED), to be held virtually from June 10-12, 2021.
Two scholarships are available. Each includes registration for the ICED 2021 virtual conference and pre-conference research workshop; and a monetary amount of up to AU$2,000 for first prize and up to AU$1,000 for second prize. The monetary award is typically provided to support travel to the conference. However, as a result of the need to hold the conference virtually, the 2021 scholarship will continue to support the research careers of the winners by presenting the first and second prizes to the values above in the form of a research stipend in lieu of a travel allowance. This will be administered by the winners’ academic institution or place of work.
To apply, applicants will need to provide:
- Confirmation that their abstract submission for a Poster or Oral presentation at ICED 2021 was accepted;
- A personal statement addressing the selection criteria. These are specified on the ANZAED scholarships page (no more than 500 words);
- A current curriculum vitae;
- Confirmation of their status as a student/early career investigator.
