Bursary applications:

A range of bursaries will be managed by the AMaGA National Office. This year, the bursary application process has been consolidated into the main conference registration process! But don’t worry, as always, payment for registration attached to a bursary is not required at the time of registering. Please note, the bursary application process is not available with the Super Early Bird registrations.

In the allocation of bursaries, priority is given to Indigenous delegates, delegates from remote or regionals area and individuals who have not previously received a bursary. 

Bursary applications close on Sunday 30 June 2024, and successful participants will be notified by Sunday 14 July 2024.
