Dear ASA Members,

In recognition of the ongoing professional difficulties experienced by some
members due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ASA continues to provide support
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.

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

*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/3a4rCE8wmrt3zqxyDHNOLyr?domain=forms.gle

Kind regards,

John L

"...it’s a human story that builds to a climax and it’s personal from end
to end.
You start out wondering why you bought those blue pajamas and later you’re
wondering why you were born. You go from the foolishly absurd to the deadly
serious and you’ve passed through the gaudy and the nasty along the way.
You get to the edge and you’re played out and you wonder where’s the good
news? Isn’t there supposed to be good news?"
