PGSA grants

Travel Grants

The PGSA is no longer able to support travel grant requests. However, here are some alternatives:

  1. Press account: Every doctoral student is allocated yearly allowance (faculty-dependant) which you can use for conference expenses overseas.
  2. Conference fund: Most faculties allow students to apply for a conference fund (usually up to 1,000 dollars) as long as you are presenting, and that you have already been accepted.
  3. PBRF funding: If you are co-presenting with your supervisor, or going to publish from your conference presentation, some supervisors may be able to fund portions of your trip from their research funds. Have a chat with you supervisor.

Additionally, we are no longer funding faculty event requests.  However we strive to provide events that fit with the needs of all University of Auckland postgraduate students.
