The aim of this award is to recognise and encourage original research by early career NSA members and support participation in eminent, scientific conferences. The award prize is $1000 to contribute towards registration for the nominated nutrition conference and/or airfare and accommodation at the conference. However, due to COVID19 restrictions on travel, NSA council has decided that this year’s awards may be used towards other activities for career development. While applications for open access journal article fee will be considered, preference will be given for attendance at courses/ activities. Further, you may apply for these funds (of up to $1000) to cover a combination of activities.
