Gatehouse Travel Award

March 2024 update -AWIS is not currently offering the Gatehouse Travel Award.

Gatehouse Travel Awards are available to those who identify as women working in science or studying science (at tertiary level or above) to attend an event that offers career development opportunities, for example, workshops and conferences. The Award is provided to support women with indirect costs associated with attendance, such as childcare, pet care or other costs (outside of costs associated with travel and registration to attend the event).

Up to six awards will be awarded each year, with each valued at up to $250. Usually there will be three funding rounds per year, closing on 31 March, 30 June and 30 September, to award funding for the following six-month period.

Applicants should be a current individual member of AWIS at the time of application.

The application form can be downloaded here.

The award is named for Hazel Gatehouse, long-term member of the AWIS Executive who passed in November 2017.
