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.
Forty-one bursaries were awarded for CAA 2019 in Krakow. These ranged between €75 (c. $83) for applicants from Europe who were presenting a paper/poster and €800 (c. $890) for students from the Rest of World (outside Europe and North and South America) who were presenting a paper/poster or chairing a session/roundtable. No bursaries were awarded for CAA 2020 in Oxford due to the event being cancelled because of Covid-19.
CAA 2021 is a virtual conference, so the registration fees are lower than usual and attendees will not incur additional travel or accommodation expenses. In light of this, and with an eye towards properly funding the Bursary Scheme for the next in-person CAA conference, it was decided the most appropriate course of action was to pause the Bursary Scheme until 2022.
Please check back here in November 2021 for information on the CAA Bursary Scheme for CAA 2022, in Oxford.
