Up to three students enrolled at the University of Auckland will be selected to participate in this event alongside students from our U21 partner universities. The University will provide economy airfares and accommodation costs for selected students. There is no registration fee.

The University will select up to three representatives. The following criteria will be taken into consideration:

  • Demonstrated academic merit (a minimum GPA of 6.0 in the 2 most recent full-time semesters of study)


  • i. Acceptance of their paper/abstract/participation by the conference organisers (in those cases where students have to apply for such acceptance first)


  • ii. Level of engagement with the conference theme (in those cases where students do not first need to be accepted by the organisers) 
  • motivation for applying to represent the University, the benefits for the University of supporting their participation, and the alignment of their application with the University’s strategic priorities 
  • suitability as a representative of the University of Auckland and demonstrated ability to work effectively across disciplines 
  • support of the student’s faculty

Preference may be given to students who have not
been previously funded by the University for similar opportunities.

Where two or more applicants are considered to equally meet the criteria, an appropriate spread of faculty representatives may be considered at the committee’s discretion.
