20 July 2023 - DIG23 Plus one bursary scheme
DIG23 Plus One Scheme Available
UCISA is pleased to announce that it is continuing to support to its Bursary-funded Plus One scheme and therefore we are extending the Plus One scheme for DIG23, the annual Digital Infrastructure conference. The scheme will ensure the conference is accessible to those who may not have had the opportunity to attend before.
With the growing challenge of talent management coinciding with a tightening of budgets in many institutions, UCISA is continuing to support its members by enabling delegates attending the full DIG23 conference programme to bring along a first-time delegate to DIG23 from their institution.
The UCISA Plus One Scheme will enable UCISA members currently booked to attend the conference to refer a colleague who has never previously attended a face-to-face UCISA conference, by completing this short form. A limited number of places will be available for this bursary funding, which is intended to support colleagues who will benefit from the experience of attending DIG23, but whose institution would not have the budget for them to do so. As part of UCISA’s commitment to inclusion, we welcome referrals from colleagues from under-represented backgrounds.
Before referring a colleague, please ensure that you discuss with referral with them first and make them aware that to be eligible, they will be required to share their findings from the conference with their institutional colleagues’ post-event, as well as disseminate their experience in a multimedia format of their choice that may be published on the UCISA website and/or social media channels.
Referees must have a booked their place for the full DIG23 Conference on the early bird rate by the deadline of 18th August 2023 and, in the bursary application form, explain the reasons why their nominated colleague deserves a bursary-funded place at DIG23.
Successful applicants will be contacted by the UCISA Events team regarding booking their full place at DIG23.
