Bob Meyer Memorial Scholarships

Bob Meyer Memorial Scholarships are provided to selected participants in the Logic Summer School.  A scholarship covers the cost of return travel between the recipient's home and Canberra by reasonable means of transport (normally bus for those living in South-East Australia, economy class advance purchase student concession airfares for those in the North or West of Australia or in New Zealand).  It also covers the Summer School registration fee and provides accommodation in student rooms at a college on campus and all meals.  All these arrangements will be organised by the Summer School.  While overseas students are eligible to apply for scholarships, we regret that we are normally unable to fund travel from outside Australia and New Zealand.
