Symposium Bursaries

Applications for bursaries are now closed and are being assessed by the ISRSE-37 Bursary Committee. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by email in April 2017.

Financial assistance to attend the symposium will take the form of waived or discounted registration fees (between ZAR3,100 and ZAR7,750). All travel and accommodation expenses remain the responsibility of the bursary recipient. The amount of financial support that can be awarded is dependent upon the success of the symposium fundraising efforts.

Successful bursary applicants will be given a registration code to use in the online registration system and must register using this code by 14 April 2017 or they will forfeit their bursary.

Eligibility
The bursaries are intended to support individuals who would not otherwise be able to meet the registration fee required to attend the symposium.

Preference will be given to:

  • Programme participants (including presenters of accepted oral or poster abstracts), and
  • delegates based in Africa.

Conditions
The award of a bursary will be conditional upon the recipient:

  • Providing a letter from their institution authorising their attendance
  • Motivating that they require financial assistance to attend the symposium
  • Attending the full symposium and participating in the programme (session facilitator, invited speaker, or presenting an oral or poster abstract)
  • Ensuring they can meet all the travel and accommodation costs associated with attending the symposium
