CIfA2021 online: bursary options

In moving to an online format for the CIfA 2021 conference, our hope is that our digital programme will improve the accessibility of the conference, whilst shielding participants; particularly those who may be at risk or vulnerable, from COVID-19.


To our aim of making the conference as accessible as possible, we have a number of bursary options available to assist with the cost of registering or attending CIfA2021. To find out more about the bursaries that are available as well as how to apply, please see further details below:

RESPECT/CIfA bursaries

RESPECT logo

CIfA is providing a number of day bursaries for those wishing to attend the Respect/CIfA Equality and Diversity Group session ‘#MeToo #TimesUp #Archaeology: influencing positive change’ .  These bursaries recognise that the issues being discussed may be of a sensitive nature and are intended therefore for those who, for whatever reason, do not have or do not feel able to ask for institutional or financial support to attend the session.
