After the successful pilot of the UCISA Bursary-funded Plus One scheme at our recent DIG22 conference, we are pleased to announce this opportunity will also be available at our CISG-PCMG22 conference taking place next month. The scheme will ensure the conference is accessible to those who may not have had the opportunity to attend before.
With the growing challenge of talent management coinciding with a tightening of budgets in many institutions, UCISA is continuing to support its members by enabling delegates attending the full CISG-PCMG22 conference programme to bring along a first-time delegate to CISG-PCMG22 from their institution.
The CISG-PCMG22 Plus One Scheme will enable UCISA members currently booked to attend the conference to refer a colleague who has never previously attended a face-to-face UCISA conference, by completing this short form. A limited number of places will be available for this bursary funding, which is intended to support deserving colleagues who will benefit from the experience of attending CISG-PCMG22, but whose institution would not have the budget for them to do so.
Before referring a colleague, please ensure that you notify them first and make them aware that to be eligible, they will be required to share their findings from the conference with their colleagues post-event, as well as to produce a short blog about their experience that may be published on the website.
Referees must have a booked their place for the full CISG-PCMG22 conference by the deadline of Wednesday 9th November and, in the short application form, explain the reasons why their nominated colleague deserves a bursary-funded place at CISG-PCMG22.Successful applicants will need to book (and pay for) their place at the conference through their institution in the normal way. The institution may then claim a refund of the delegate fee of £495 + VAT from UCISA by completing a separate form to confirm that their delegate attended, shared their conference findings with colleagues and submitted the required blog.
