The Spinal Research Institute (SRI) will fund a Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) International Travel Collaboration Grant in 2017.



The objective of this grant is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and to build relationships between individuals, institutions and countries involved in spinal cord research through attendance at the 2017 International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) Annual Scientific Meeting. It also provides an opportunity to connect with institutions and organisations that support the grant recipients' area of research.


The grant will provide funding of up to AUD$5000 and is open to early career clinical researchers in the SCI field. It represents a unique opportunity to garner fresh ideas and collaborate with international peers.



  • The funds must be used for the purpose described in the application and may not be used to supplement other funding received for the same purpose.

  • The funding may not be used to cover other costs, such as accompanying family members or salary. 

  • It is expected that the grant recipient will attend any relevant collaboration workshop sessions as part of the 2017 ISCoS program.

  • A report detailing the funded experience, and what was accomplished and learnt must be submitted in writing within two months of the conclusion of the travel grant. SRI may choose to publish the report in its newsletter or website. 

  • SRI must be acknowledged as a funding source in all publications and presentations derived from the travel grant. 

  • An account of how the funds were used including valid receipts must be provided to The SRI within two months of the conclusion of the travel grant.

  • Applicants will be informed of the decision approximately three weeks after the deadline date.
