Description

Wine Australia will consider applications to support international travel for conference attendance and/or study tours hat align with our RD&E priority areas, with the two-fold purpose of:

  • demonstrating benefit to the Australian grape and wine sector and/or existing research, and
  • supporting careers for grape and wine researchers in the sector and academia by providing opportunities to broaden their professional development, particularly early in their career

Eligibility

As funding is limited, preference is likely to be given to:

  • individuals presenting at a conference (paper or poster) rather than attendance only
  • post-graduate researchers who have not previously received a travel bursary from Wine Australia, and
  • individuals that can clearly demonstrate innovative learnings for the grape and wine sector from the proposed activities that cannot easily be gained elsewhere.

    How to apply

    To apply for a Wine Australia Travel Bursary, you must complete an application online through the Clarity Investment Management System (CIMS). A log in and password can be obtained by emailing your full name, address, contact phone number and name of affiliated organisation to applications@wineaustralia.com. Please ensure you read the Application Guide before you begin your application.

    As the Graduate School must review and submit the application on your behalf, please ensure that you have enough time for the process to be completed BEFORE the closing date. Please submit your draft application to agreements@gradschool.uq.edu.au at least two weeks prior to the submission deadline for review and authorisation.

    Wine Australia assesses travel bursary applications through a process that uses clear and objective criteria and exclude any individuals with a conflict of interest from the assessment.

    Evidence of your acceptance by the conference organisers to present a paper/poster and/or conference registration is required. If this is not available when your application is submitted, the evidence must be supplied as soon as practicable. For approvals contingent on a conference presentation payment will not be made until evidence is supplied. Wine Australia reserves the right to withdraw approval if evidence is not supplied within one month of proposed travel.

    Selection criteria

    Applications should detail the identified benefit to the Australian grape and wine community and should highlight both the professional development benefit to the applicant and the mechanism for dissemination of knowledge to the sector.

    Relationships between the proposed travel and current or potential R&D should be clearly explained.

    As funding is limited, preference is likely to be given to:

    • individuals presenting at a conference (paper or poster) rather than attendance only
    • post-graduate researchers who have not previously received a travel bursary from Wine Australia, and
    • individuals that can clearly demonstrate innovative learnings for the grape and wine sector from the proposed activities that cannot easily be gained elsewhere.

    Applications are assessed against the following questions:

    • Does the proposed travel benefit the Australian grape and wine community and meet the sector’s strategic goals?
    • Are the outputs and activities appropriate?
    • Is the plan for knowledge dissemination appropriate?
    • What is the risk that the activities will not be delivered as planned?
    • How will the travel contribute to professional development of the applicant?
    • Is the proposal value for money, taking into account the cash and in-kind co contribution to the proposal by the applicant and other parties?
