In October this year, NDARC awarded travel scholarships to early career researchers (ECRs) and higher degree research students (HDRs) in the alcohol and other drugs (AOD) sector. The scholarship recipients attended key events, including the 2023 NDARC Annual Research Symposium and the NDARC Early Career Networking Event. Nathan Harrison, a PhD candidate at Flinders University, and Cheneal Puljevic, an ARC DECRA Fellow at the Centre of Research Excellence on Achieving the Tobacco Endgame (University of Queensland), have shared their experiences. Here's what they had to say.
