A deadline for the scholarship does not seem to be mentioned on the page, so our operating assumption is that applying sooner may be better than later.
Additionally, we cannot find any discussion on the website for scholarships for face-to-face conference registration and/or travel fees, suggesting that such funding may not be available. We hope that is not the case, however, since – especially with such high registration fees, combined with the relatively high costs for many of getting to Brisbane – a remote-only approach would tend to minimize diversity (geographic, economic, racial, and ethnic) among those present in person, and therefore best able to network and help to set the global agenda for this kind of work moving forward.
