Dear ASA Members,

In recognition of the ongoing professional difficulties experienced by some members due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ASA is operating another round of funding through the ASA COVID Fund. In consultation with the ASA ECR Chapter, we have developed a set of COVID Fund Guidelines (attached) with the aim to make the fund conditions more transparent and accessible.

The current round is for expenses incurred in the period January 1, 2021 - June 30, 2021. Applications will be considered as they are received.

Prioritisation of individuals

Students and ECRs (within five years FTE of PhD) will be strongly prioritised. More senior members with a very compelling case may also be considered.

Funding level

Individual payments, up to $1,500, with the expectation that most requests would be substantially less than this amount. Members can apply in more than one funding round, if funds are available, but the total integrated funding per individual is capped at $1,500.

Accessing funds

After reviewing the COVID Fund Guidelines, please fill the online form, with attachments, at https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/-YnECr81nyt8DLz6kU7rbnN?domain=forms.gle<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/-YnECr81nyt8DLz6kU7rbnN?domain=forms.gle>

Kind regards,
