ANZSN Travel Grants

One of the key goals of the Society is to ensure that the highest professional standards are maintained for the practice of Nephrology in Australia and New Zealand by supporting and promoting renal research and education. To achieve this goal, the Society, with some assistance of its Sponsors, provides a number of travel grants for its Members to attend national and international meetings relevant to the study of kidney and urinary tract in health and disease. Further details regarding eligibility and how to apply are described below.

Membership Financial Support Limit

Each year, the Society provides specific application forms for the Nephrology and Transplantation Update Course, Annual Scientific Meeting and some international meetings. Otherwise, a generic application form can be completed.

Application forms and further details will be made available on this website (refer the links below for the grant you are seeking) and also within the ANZSN Weekly Update once the key dates have been set.

It is important that your application is received by the Society Office by the nominated closing date. Applications received by the Society Office after the closing date will not be accepted.Once your application has been received it will be evaluated by the Society’s Scientific Programme and Education Committee (SPEC) and SPEC’s final recommendations will be ratified by the ANZSN Council. We will notify you of your application’s outcome via email once all applications for the relevant meeting have been considered.
