Funded by Perth Convention Bureau under its Aspire Program, the Professional Development Awards consist of one $5,000 grant that will be presented to The University of Western Australia staff member to assist in their personal and professional development through attendance at a relevant international conference in their chosen field of endeavour.


How do I apply?

Simply research an international conference that has the potential to be staged in Western Australia and present a brief case as to why the conference should be held here. For more information, see below for the 2018 Information Flyer and Guidelines.

What can the $5,000 be used for?

The awards cover air travel as well as accommodation and registration to a relevant conference to a maximum of $5,000. In the event that the successful applicant’s organisation is not currently a member of their international body, the $5,000 award can contribute to the cost of their joining fee.
