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. REMEMBER your CAA dues support bursaries.
A total of 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/roundtable, were awarded for CAA 2016 in Oslo.
Bursaries will be available for CAA 2017 in Atlanta and 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 will also be 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.
To increase the amount available for the CAA 2017 bursaries, we are currently sourcing a number of external funders, and we will be updating this web page with more details once these have been agreed upon. It is however expected that applicants for bursaries will have sought their own additional funding from other sources.
Applicants will have to explain why they are requesting a bursary, along with itemized costs and a statement of other sources of funding for which they have applied. A current CV and proof student/employment status will also be necessary*.
Submission and award dates will be released over the next few weeks.
All application materials should be submitted in English.
* Students should supply a copy of their student card or a letter confirming the course that they are studying for from their head of department on official letterhead with a valid date from this academic year (without a date we are unable to confirm if you are a current student); other applicants should supply a letter stating their job title and salary from their employer on an official letterhead. All information will remain confidential.
