Carer Support

CAUTHE offers Carer Support to assist CAUTHE members to attend the annual conference. The scheme is open to all CAUTHE individual members.

The aim of the scheme is to provide assistance to those who would like to attend the conference but have carer responsibilities or needs that result in an additional financial burden. The funding scheme will provide individual grants of up to a maximum of AU$500 each.

To be eligible for the scheme, applicants should:

  • Be a current individual Student or Associate CAUTHE member
  • Have a paper accepted by the conference reviewers as a full or working paper
  • Provide a brief statement outlining your need for funding
  • Be prepared to submit a brief report (to be kept confidential for Executive committee use only) within one month following the conference outlining how the grant facilitated your attendance, if your application is successful.

Submit a full or working paper electronically by the submission deadline at the Annual CAUTHE conference website.

Contact the Executive Committee Carer Support representative, Naomi Dale for further information.
