International Conference Travel Bursary
The NZ Concrete Society (NZCS) is a learned society that promotes the use of concrete within New Zealand. Part of this promotion is demonstrating to New Zealand and the world some of the significant projects and research being undertaken using concrete.
In order to assist in promoting some of these concrete projects the NZCS will be offering a yearly conference travel bursary. The bursary will be used to assist the recipient to attend a conference and present their work.
The value of the conference travel bursary is limited to a maximum of $5,000 (NZ$).
Applications for the Travel Bursary close on the last working day of February each year.
