Bursaries

Applications for the CAA 2017 bursaries are now CLOSED!

We are no longer accepting applications without good cause

The CAA Bursary Scheme is intended to provide financial assistance to students, early career researchers and low income professionals or those from less affluent regions.  Bursaries are intended to encourage participation in the annual CAA conference and help sustain the expansion of the CAA community.

59 bursaries, ranging between €170 (c. $191) for applicants from Europe who were attending the conference for the first time without presenting a paper/poster and €420 (c. $473) for students from the Rest of World (outside Europe and North America) who were presenting a paper/poster or chairing a session/round table, were awarded for  CAA 2016 in Oslo.

Preference will be given to applicants who are active contributors to the CAA community, typically by presenting a paper/poster or by chairing a session.  Applications are also welcome from new members of the CAA community who wish to attend CAA for the first time in order to advance their future academic research or career prospects.

It is expected that applicants for bursaries will have sought additional funding from other sources.

Applicants should explain why they are requesting a bursary using the form provided below and clearly state other sources of funding for which they have applied for. They should also provide a current CV and proof of their student/employment status*.

All application materials should be submitted in English.

Key dates for applications to the CAA Bursary Scheme are outlined below:

  • Open: 1st November 2016;
  • Deadline: 20th January 2017 – CLOSED;
  • Notification: 2nd February 2017.

Applicants will be notified of the amount they have been awarded by email.

Bursary holders are also entitled to the reduced conference registration fee.
