Society for Endocrinology - a world-leading authority on hormones

ESA-SfE Exchange Award

The purpose of this Exchange Award is to foster the development of collaborative research projects by enabling members of the Endocrine Society of Australia (ESA) and the Society for Endocrinology (SfE) to visit overseas researchers to initiate further studies.

The ESA-SfE Exchange Award is now open for applications!

The award provides subsistence and travel costs associated with undertaking a research-led placement, typically of around 4 weeks, in an overseas institution (hospital, university department, research institute or other approved facility) in Australia or the UK, which coincides with attendance at the annual scientific meeting in the host country (either ESA annual meeting or the annual SfE BES conference). The planned overseas research project must relate to an area of endocrinology.


The deadline has now passed.


The Award will total $AU7000 / £4000 to contribute to the cost of flights, visas, accommodation, and any necessary transfer of materials between home and host labs.


At the time of the application, the applicant must:

  • Be a member of ESA or SfE, and have been so for at least 12 months and remain so during the Award.
  • Be within 15 years (full-time equivalent) of a higher qualification (PhD, MD, FRACP/MRCP).
  • Be able to present an existing body of research at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the ESA or SfE in the year of Award acceptance, putting the research visit in context.
  • Have ethics approval if appropriate by the time of Award commencement (evidence of ethics approval required)

A successful applicant cannot reapply for this Award.
