Student Research Project Funding


BEES encourages research students to present their research at relevant conferences.

In the first instance all postgraduate research students must first seek and apply for funding from the GRS via the UNSW Postgraduate Research Student Support (PRSS) Scheme for conference travel funds.

In circumstances where PRSS funding does not cover all costs of conference attendance students may apply for up to $800 towards conference attendance.
