Conference bursaries

Bursaries are available to support speakers and IfA members who would like some support towards either travel or registration fee. We have two bursaries, the Conference speakers fund and the IfA members fund_. We have a limited budget for both types of bursary and ask those applying to provide details of what kind of support they would like and justification for support.

Please be advised that requests for the Conference speakers fund should be submitted to session organisers in the first instance. Support for either fund will not normally exceed £150.
