The purpose of the PGSA Academic Conference Grant is to provide current Victoria University of Wellington postgraduate students with funds to assist with travelling for international academic conferences.
In 2010, the PGSA began offering travel grants for research students to gain experience presenting at international conferences (formerly the “PGSA Travel Grants”).
In 2015, the PGSA reconfigured the PGSA Travel Grants to ensure improved equitable distribution of funds and increased numbers of successful candidates.
In 2019, the PGSA restructured the PGSA Academic Conference Grants as untagged travel grants to provide successful candidates the freedom to utilise the funds to cover costs associated with international conference attendance.
