Aspire Awards look to assist individuals and support local conference industry
In addition, the Telethon Kids Institute Aspire Conference Award is open to staff at the Telethon Kids Institute. The inaugural Australian Institute of Management WA (AIM WA) Aspire Conference Scholarship is also open to an AIM WA employee/professional member.
The aim of the Aspire Program is to assist the individual’s personal and professional development through attendance at a relevant international conference. The funding covers travel, accommodation and registration expenses to the maximum value of the award.
PCB chief executive Paul Beeson said the Aspire Program is a highly successful initiative of PCB which supports the aims of Western Australian academics.
“Through the Aspire Program we’re delighted to be able to assist the professional development of our academic institutions, not-for-profit and research communities,” he said.
“The program allows the recruitment of potential Western Australian ‘local conveners’ who, with our support, may choose to pursue and secure the conferences of interest to their areas of expertise.”
