Gatehouse Travel Award

Gatehouse Travel Awards are available to 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). Six awards will be awarded each year, with each valued at up to $250. There will be three funding rounds per year, closing on 31 March, 30 June or 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.

In the 2020 year, we are offering additional Travel Awards for those attending the AWIS 2020 conference. Applications for this round will close on 1 May 2020.

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.
