Travel Bursaries for the ISATT 2009 Conference

 

  The following bursaries are available for Research Students:

6 bursaries of £150.00 each to students studying in countries relatively close to the conference venue (Europe (Eurovision Song Contest) and parts of N.W. Asia within similar flying distances in the case of Rovaniemi).

6 bursaries of £250.00 each to students studying in countries at a median distance from the venue (distance to be judged by Executive case by case).

6 bursaries of £350.00 each to students studying in countries at a great distance from the venue (USA, Canada, Australasia)


To be considered applicants must:

  • Be members of ISATT;
  • Be presenting a paper at the conference;
  • Provide a supporting letter from their supervisor/advisor that indicates how attendance the conference will aid and support their studies.

In addition, there will be two bursaries of £250.00 each for academic applicants from low income countries (as defined by the World Bank) who must be:

  • members of ISATT;
  • presenting a paper at the conference.

Applications must be received by Daniela Hotolean by the 1st May 2009 (d.hotolean@reading.ac.uk).

Reimbursement will be made at the conference on presentation of receipts for travel.

Finally, any conference presenter (up to a total of 10/ten) from a low income country who is NOT currently a member of ISATT will be entitled to free membership for the coming term. They will be expected to contribute an article to the newsletter and to promote ISATT and its values in their home country.
