The Anatomical Society of Southern Africa value the contribution of every member, but specifically strive to encourage presentations of postgraduate students at our Annual ASSA conferences. Therefore, the Society has always attempted to assist students with some type of financial assistance to attend and present at our conferences.  

An application process for financial assistance will be initiated this year to ensure that the available funding for studentships are utilised optimally. Please take note that although every attempt will be made to assist as many students as possible, from all postgraduate levels and representing institutions, all applications received may not necessarily be successful.

Studentship application criteria are as follows:

  • Full-time postgraduate student;
  • Registered for 2018 at a recognised educational institution in Southern Africa;
  • Limited current financial support;
  • Intended presenting author at the ASSA 2018 conference and
  • An ASSA member / applied for ASSA membership in 2018

If the above criteria are met, please submit the following documentation electronically by latest 28 February 2018 to ASSA2018@uj.ac.za. The subject line should please state your Surname, Initials and "Studentship application":

  • Proof of registration at a recognised educational institution in Southern Africa 2018
  • Motivation from supervisor (of applicable postgraduate study) regarding the need for financial assistance
  • ASSA membership certificate / proof that ASSA membership has been applied for recently
  • Abstract of intended presentation at ASSA 2018

Persons currently employed full-time and/or recipients of grants to cover conference attendance can unfortunately not be considered.

Feedback regarding the outcome of the application will be received by latest 5 March 2018. If the application is successful, the details of the extent of studentship financial assistance will also be communicated accordingly.
