FAQs

Who is the conference for?

EAGxAustralia is aimed at people with an understanding of the core ideas of effective altruism. E.g. people who have completed an introductory course, or who have engaged with more than 20 hours of effective altruism related content. We would encourage all people described here to apply. If you’re unsure about whether to apply, err on the side of applying. 

Applications

You’ll need to apply to attend EAGxAustralia— once accepted, you’ll be able to purchase your ticket. If you’ve attended an EAGx conference in the past, most of the fields can be prepopulated with your responses from previous applications if you log in at the start.

We strongly recommend that you take the time to thoroughly fill out the application, as the information you provide will also be used to help you make the most out of the conference. Applications close June 24th, two weeks before the conference, though we strongly encourage people to apply as soon as they can.

 

Travel Assistance

You’ll be able to apply for financial assistance for your travel expenses in the application form. Please do apply for support if the cost of attending would be prohibitive for you.

 

Visas

We’ve compiled some guidance for attendees who may require a visa to enter Australia and participate in the conference. We strongly encourage attendees do their own research into whether they require a visa, and which visa is best. None of our guidance is official legal advice.
