We are delighted to announce that Data for Policy is accepting applications for inclusion scholarships, deadline 12:00 UTC+1, 22 July.
Data for Policy is committed to increasing diversity in its community. We understand that the cost of registration may be a barrier to participation, and are therefore delighted to offer Data for Policy inclusion scholarships to suitable candidates from groups which are currently underrepresented in our community, in particular those from developing nations, who will extend our geographic diversity. These scholarships cover 90% of the full registration fee (£150). Scholarship awards are based on the level of financial need, and the appropriateness of the opportunity afforded to the applicant. To be eligible, applicants must have no other source of funding to meet the cost of registration. Applications from those invited to present at the conference will be prioritized. Full details of how to apply are in the registration section of the 2021 conference page
The deadline for applications is 12:00 UTC+1, 22 July. Any unsuccessful inclusion scholarship applicants will be able to register at the early bird discount price (£120), if their application is received by the deadline.
