Conference Bursary Fund

The EDC Conference Bursary Fund is intended to support new professionals without professional development funds. We invite all early career educational developers (up to 3 years’ experience) who do not have professional development funds to apply to the EDC bursary fund to receive financial assistance to attend the conference or institute.

The amount of each bursary will be up to a maximum of the cost of conference and pre-conference fees. The exact amount of the bursary will depend on the number of successful applications.
