Conference Travel Grant for Students

NZPPS may make monetary grants to students to assist them to attend and present an Oral paper or Poster at the annual Conference. Grants may be awarded, on a competitive basis, to students from whom research papers have been accepted for presentation. Typically, two awards will be given each year: one for an Oral presentation valued at $1,000 and one for a Poster presentation valued at $500.

Applications will be assessed based on:

  • Relevance to plant protection
  • Advancement of plant protection in New Zealand
  • Importance of study demonstrated
  • Financial need
  • Quality of application

Applications need to provide a brief supporting statement from the applicant’s supervisor.

It is expected that the travel grant recipient will attend the full 3-day conference whether presenting an Oral or Poster presentation.


Applications must be received by the secretary by 13 June 2024.

For enquiries, contact the secretary.
