World Parkinson’s Conference Travel Grants
Thursday, 17th November 2022

Shake It Up Australia Foundation is funding 25 Travel Grants to the World Parkinson’s Congress (WPC) in Barcelona, Spain from 4 – 7 July 2023 for Australian Honours, Undergrad, MD and PhD students and early-career researchers. The AUS$3000 travel grants also include complementary WPC registration as we understand the importance of supporting early career researchers to increase research and clinical support of PD in Australia.


To apply, researchers must:

–             Submit an abstract to the WPC Congress for consideration before January 13

–             Have at least one abstract accepted for consideration of the travel support

–             Be under the age of 40 at the opening of the Congress in July 2023 or have just launched their research career (details required)


Travel grant awardees will be chosen on the quality of their abstracts and relevance to Parkinson’s disease.  Recipients of the Australian WPC Travel Grants will also have the opportunity to attend a networking and mentoring event with experienced Parkinson’s researchers to be held in Sydney after the WPC.


This is a unique opportunity for Australian researchers to showcase their discoveries on a global stage, network with world-leading experts, and most importantly, to learn directly from people living with PD every day. Applications can be made via the WPC website.
