The Australia-Indonesia Centre Health Cluster is pleased to announce that Travel Grant applications are now open for researchers, clinicians and postgraduate students to attend the 11th World Congress on Adolescent Health in New Delhi held on 27-29 October 2017.

The purpose of the Travel Grants is to broaden the source of innovation across all AIC participating institutions which can potentially contribute to the achievement of the Health Cluster’s goals:

As part of the selection process, preference will be given to applicants who have been engaged in AIC-related activities, have submitted (or are planning to submit) an abstract to the IAAH, have leadership potential in adolescent health, and who are working or undertaking post-graduate study that is aligned with the Health Cluster priorities and mission.
