Travel assistance

The ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language (CoEDL) has some support for students and unwaged people to attend CoEDL events. The aim of the Summer School travel support awards is to support new and emerging researchers, who have the potential to contribute to the growth of the language sciences, especially as relating to the languages of Australia and its region. The awards are intended for people with limited or no access to funding support, including, but not limited to, students and speakers of small languages. This support is available to Australian citizens and permanent residents as well as to citizens of other countries.


1. Students whose primary supervisor is a Chief Investigator (CI) in CoEDL are not eligible to apply. They should approach their supervisor for support.

2. Students whose co-supervisor is a CI in CoEDL should contact that co-supervisor and find out what level of travel support they may be able to access, and describe that level of support in their application.

3. You must have a referee (e.g. supervisor, professional, member of speech community).
