ozgrav student travel support
To help enable attendance of our students, OzGrav headquarters will provide $800 per interstate student (i.e. students from Uni of Melbourne, Monash, Swinburne, ANU & Uni of Adelaide) towards the costs of flights and accommodation. Accommodation will be booked and paid upfront by OzGrav HQ based upon the details provided when you register.
UWA students who would also like to stay onsite at the Novotel Vines Resort will also receive a $150 travel subsidy.
Node administrators can liaise with OzGrav HQ after the event to arrange payment of the travel support for each student.
