ASCIA Awards and Grants

ASCIA Annual Conference Awards

Each year ASCIA provides awards and travel scholarships for the ASCIA Annual Conference.   Recipients of awards are listed on the ASCIA website:



Research Project Grants

Funding for research projects has been reinstated in 2015 through the Allergy and Immunology Foundation of Australasia (AIFA), an initative of ASCIA.  For more information go to: www.allergyimmunology.org.au/projects

Prior to this, between 2004-2008, ASCIA awarded a total of $558,600 in grants and endowments.  Of these funds $325,600 was spent specifically on funding research on: 

  • allergic diseases ($163,900)
  • other immune diseases ($161,700). 

The source of these grants, endowments and awards was the income from investing proceeds from ASCIA conferences, and in particular the proceeds from the highly successful World Allergy Congress 2000, which was held in Sydney and hosted by ASCIA.   These grants were ceased after 2008 due to reduced income from investments. 

AIFA is generously supported by ASCIA members and wishes to extend its appeal to the public, corporations and motivated individuals who wish to fundraise for research into allergy and immune disease. A fundraising event can be created on the charity platform www.goodcompany.com.au or workplace giving encouraged via www.cafaustralia.org.au
