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 2014 with the establishment of the Allergy and Immunology Foundation of Australasia (AIFA). For more information go to: www.allergyimmunology.org.au
Prior to this, ASCIA provided a total of $558,600 in grants, endowments and awards from 2004 to 2008. 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.
