Kia ora Koutou,

  The British Academy and Australian Academy of the Humanities have made available places for up to four New Zealanders and two Pacific Islands delegates for the event described in the attached flyer.  We think this is a great opportunity for early career researchers in the humanities and social sciences. Applications are made directly to the British Academy, and those successful will have their on-ground costs in Brisbane met.

 The responsibility for travel to and from Brisbane would be up to successful applicants from NZ and the Pacific, but Royal Society Te Apārangi will provide grants in aid. These grants are actual travel costs up to a maximum of $750 (up to $750 for ECR Forum Members and Pacific delegates, two-thirds of the cost up to $500 for non-member New Zealand delegates). 

 The successful applicants (after notification from the British Academy) should notify me to request a grant. Further detail here: https://royalsociety.org.nz/news/knowledge-frontiers-forum-sponsered/

The application call is haere: http://lawas.co.nz/extras/Call.pdf

At a pinch we may self-host longer documents to link in the eNews, but they must be submitted as pdf or word documents as attachments to emails. They need some processing so there may be a delay in their being used.

If you are running a conference we will usually run a link once only - and if you don't have a website for it yet, then tell us when you have.
