REPORTING REQUIREMENTS FOR PROJECT AND TRAVEL GRANTS
Reporting requirements that are a condition of all project and travel grants are as follows:
A brief report on precisely what the grant funds were used for and the outcome of the project or travel that occurred as a result of the grant. To be submitted to the Society Secretary within three months of completion of project work or travel; and
Submittal of a relevant scientific paper detailing the results of the project or travel to the Journal of Hydrology (New Zealand) or other suitable scientific journals within 12 months of completion of project work or travel; or
Presentation of a relevant paper at the Society's annual conference or another suitable scientific conference within 12 months of completion of project work or travel; or
Submittal of a report for publication in the Society's newsletter Current.
In the case of travel grants, copies of paid invoices for actual expenses incurred must be submitted to support the reimbursement under the grant.
At the time a grant is awarded, specific requirements attached by the Society's Executive will be communicated to the grantee in writing as a condition of the grant. The grantee's acceptance of the grant means that the grantee accepts the reporting requirements. All grants will normally be in the form of reimbursement after expenses have been incurred and reporting requirements met. Grants-in-aid of travel will normally be in the form of reimbursement after the applicant has registered for the conference and attended it. However, grants-in-aid of travel may be authorized to be paid in advance at the discretion of the Executive in case of need.
