To ensure equal access to this conference, two types of participant grants are available.
Grants have been made available thanks to the assistance of the Conference for European University Chaplains (CEUC) and the International Association of Chaplains in Higher Education (IACHE).
There are two different grants that can be applied for:
Our conference already offers all Majority World* participants a scholarship rate for the conference fee (£240) and for accommodation (£125).
There are a minimum of 15 grants of £265 each to reduce these costs to £100. It is also possible to attend the pre-conference on the scholarship rate for £25.
*Majority World: this term is similar to term 'Global South' but for our conference includes all 'Developing Economies' and 'Economies in Transition' as listed in the 2019 UN World Economic Situation Prospects.
If you are of Reduced Means** you can apply for a grant of £115 to bring your conference participation and accommodation costs down to £250 (or £275 including the pre-conference).
Alternatively, if you are student then a grant can bring your costs down to £200 (or £225 including the pre-conference).
There are only a limited number of grants, so please wait for confirmation before assuming what costs you will incur in coming to the conference.
Our conference from 13-17 June 2022 already offers automatic scholarships to those of Reduced Means** from the Minority World***. The automatic rates without this grant would be £365 including accommodation for those of Reduced Means** or £315 for students including accommodation.
**Defining Reduced Means:
We have looked again at UN indicators and ask that those from the — if your annual income, (including benefits and before tax) does not exceed, circa £19,500, €23,000 or $25,000 USD, that you are entitled to the scholarship rate.
***Defining Minority World:
Minority World also means Developed Economies listed in the 2019 UN World Economic Situation Prospects.
