Introducing the new ASI Carer Awards - COVID support

Application round:  September 8th - October 5th 2020
to support caring costs in 2020 or 2021

ASI is acutely aware of the pressure that COVID-19 restrictions have placed on carers, limiting access to care support from both formal and informal mechanisms.

To support members of our community whose carer responsibilities have impacted or will impact on their career progression, we invite applications to the 2020 ASI Carer Awards- COVID support. 
We have created these awards by repurposing the funds originally committed to the ASI Branch Meeting Carer's Awards, ASI Annual Meeting Carer's Awards, and the Women's Initiative Travel Awards for 2020.

Purpose

The purpose of the 2020 ASI Carer Awards - COVID support is to provide financial support to fund formal or informal carer support. Applicants can apply for up to $1000 and the exact use of the award money is determined by the awardee but must directly support caring for dependents. Please note that the Career Advancement Awards - Tier 2 could also be used to support caring costs up to $3000 for PhD students and post-docs.
