AHDA Conference

Student Awards and Scholarships

This year we are offering a limited number of student awards in recognition of high quality student presentations as well as travel scholarships available to support student attendance and presentation at the conference.

AHDA Postgraduate Student Awards

AHDA is keen to encourage students to present high quality posters and papers at the conference. To achieve this aim, we are offering three student awards for excellent conference presentations. Students who receive this award will each receive a cash award of NZ$600 and a Certificate of Excellence.

A panel of experienced researchers will judge the awards, based on the content of the presentation, the ability of the presenter to convey with clarity and interest the theoretical and methodological bases and findings of the research, as well as the quality of discussion points or conclusions drawn from the findings. These awards will be judged during the conference, and the winners will be announced at the end of the conference. Please be sure to indicate that you wish to be considered for a student award on the individual submission form, or advise your symposium convener.

Student co-authors who are proposed presenters and who wish to be considered for these awards should indicate that they are student-presenters at the time of submission.

Conference Travel Scholarships for Student Presenters

We will be offering a limited number of travel scholarships to assist student presenters with travel costs associated with conference participation. Awards of up to NZ$600 will be provided, determined by estimated costs associated with conference travel and other funding available to the student.

Student presenters who wish to be considered for a travel scholarship should complete the Online Travel Scholarship application.
