The aim of the award is to enhance participant learning through supporting the sharing and development of knowledge and is specifically designed to support costs associated with travel, accommodation and other direct conference attendance costs, along with those costs associated with meeting experts in the chosen field of study.
Requirements and./or
Conditions
Applicants must have already been enrolled in the postgraduate course program and commencing TLR504 unit.

The grant will assist with funding costs associated with travel, accommodation and conference fees that are directly related to the research project within the TLR504 unit.

Applicants must undertake a research project of their own choice that will require a travel component to fulfil the proposed research question. For instance the recipient may attend an agricultural/agribusiness related conference to gain more insight into research methodologies or to meet experts in the field. Likewise the travel grant could assist with meeting experts at a national or international level.

The Marcus Oldham College Scholarship committee will consider applications for travel, study tours or conference attendance that can clearly demonstrate the benefits for the applicant to their TLR504 research project. Applications should highlight both the professional development benefit to the applicant, and the mechanism for dissemination of knowledge to the industry, and any R&D benefits to arise from this.
