Round 21 (2020)

Round 21 of Twins Research Australia’s (TRA) Travel Grant Scheme opens for application from 20th March 2020.

TRA is a national twin research centre and comprises a rich resource of data, collaborative networks, and a registry of over 70,000 twins willing to participate in research. It is a resource that is open to all researchers.

Through our collaborations, we aim to connect researchers, twins and their families, and the TRA team together in an effort to bring about improved health outcomes for all.

The TRA Travel Grant Scheme aims to encourage the growth and development of twin research in Australia by:

  • Supporting the training and development of Australian researchers in the methodology and practice of studies involving twins by offering financial assistance to attend TRA workshops and events.
  • Presenting and promoting TRA based twin research studies at scientific conferences.

Those attending Twins 2020 Congress (July, Beijing, China); World Congress of Epidemiology (September, Melbourne); or 2020 International Population Data Linkage Conference (October, Adelaide) are also eligible to apply.  Please note: In view of continuing news about the Coronavirus, Twins Research Australia cannot guarantee that any of the upcoming conferences will proceed as planned. If you are awarded a 2020 travel grant and there are changes or cancellations, our policy is to withdraw the award until such time that events are rescheduled. At that time, past award recipients will be free to re-apply.
