From time-to-time, ASLIA offers financial support to its members as well as to interpreting communities in the Australasia/Oceania regions.
The Creating Opportunities Fund has a strong history of offering support to our colleagues living within our shared geographic region.
As well, with the support of deafness sector organisations, ASLIA has been able to assist some of its members to attend the ASLIA National Conference (ANC).
ASLIA itself has very limited funds at its disposal. It is important for members to remember that whilst ASLIA collects your membership fees, it passes 80% of your membership fee to your state branch. It is for this reason that ASLIA does not have a Bursary of its own.
Finally, ASLIA provides infrastructure support for the Kathy Walsh Memorial Fund, which does provide certain ASLIA and SLIANZ members with the opportunity to attend the ANC.
