ASCIA Awards and Grants

ASCIA Grants and Awards - Important Notice

The significant downturn in financial markets in 2008 adversely affected the source of grant and award funding for ASCIA.  As a result of this, ASCIA Council has taken a decision not to fund ASCIA grants and awards from 2009 to at least 2011 to prevent further diminishing of its capital base.  This decision has been taken with a view of being able to provide and sustain funding of ASCIA grants and awards in the future. However, ASCIA will still provide industry funded grants or awards and sponsored ASCIA Annual Scientific Meeting travel grants and awards from 2008 onwards. 

From 2004 to 2008 ASCIA provided a total of $558,600 in grants, endowments and awards.  
Of these funds, $325,600 was spent specifically on funding research on allergic diseases ($163,900) and immune diseases ($161,700).  The source of these grants, endowments and awards was the income from investing proceeds from ASCIA meetings, and in particular the proceeds from the highly successful World Allergy Congress 2000, which was held in Sydney and hosted by ASCIA.
