The purpose of these small grants is to support collaborative research between SASP postgraduate members from different universities.

The program supports one-week expert-led graduate schools in Australasia and North America. The aims of this program are: (1) to foster international cooperation between members of these two organizations, (2) to provide an opportunity for groups of graduate students to receive intensive specialist education from an academic expert from overseas, and (3) to provide an opportunity to build links between groups of researchers and research institutions within a geographical region.
