2018 Conference Scholarships
The IAWBH is happy to announce the development of a scholarship programme for our biennial conference. The provision of scholarships was strongly supported by members at the 2016 General Assembly, and the scholarships will be offered for the first time in 2018. Below is information about the scholarship programme.
To be eligible, applicants must be:
1. PhD students who are IAWBH members, and enrolled in a PhD programme at the commencement of the conference
2. Have submitted an abstract for the conference by the due date.
Amounts/number of Scholarships
Up to six (6) scholarships will be awarded, in the following categories:
How to apply
Candidates should apply for the scholarship by completing the form available from the IAWBH website when they submit their abstract for the conference.
Applications of candidates whose abstracts have been accepted for oral presentation at the conference will be assessed by a three person sub-committee of the IAWBH Board (composition: 2 board members + 1 IAWBH member) who will make recommendations to the Board regarding which applicants (if any) should be awarded a scholarship. Public announcement of the scholarship recipients will take place during the IAWBH General Assembly at the 2018 conference.
Once awarded, the disbursement of funds in cases 2 and 3 above will be completed after the conference, subject to:
Other terms and conditions
The physical campus of the institution at which the applicant is studying will be the sole consideration for determining that category of scholarship (e.g. developed, transitional, developing country). For example, an Indian student studying at a campus in the USA would be considered a developed country application.
The Board’s decisions on all aspects relating to the awarding of scholarships shall be final, and no correspondence will be entered into.
*As defined by UN country list. See http://www.un.org/en/development/desa/policy/wesp/wesp_current/2014wesp_country_classification.pdf for list of countries
The application form and details on submission will be made available here very soon.
