ABIL is committed to supporting scholars at every stage of their academic careers, a task that begins at the postgraduate level. Engaging postgraduate students and encouraging their full participation in the Association is one of our central objectives. As such, the Association will offer limited funding to graduate students presenting at the Conference in Newcastle.
There will be support available for students’ travel and accommodation. In order to be reimbursed, graduate students should email their travel/accommodation receipts together with the PG Support form filled in to ABIL’s treasurer Maria Tavares (see form in attachment). Please make sure you are up-to-date with your £10 annual membership fee before you request your refund. You should be paid in via bank transfer or cheque after the conference.
Experience from previous conferences tells us that we managed to wave the conference fee and award a fixed amount towards travel and accommodation. In all conferences, that fixed amount varied according to the total amount of PGs attending the conference.
