WIT23 Plus One scheme

31 March 2023 - WIT23 Plus One scheme

Don't Miss Out on WIT23 - UCISA Bursary Scheme Now Open!


Applications are open for the UCISA Bursary-funded Plus One scheme for the WiT23 conference. The scheme will ensure the conference is accessible to those who may not have had the opportunity to attend before. It is a fantastic opportunity for those who are passionate about women in tech but may face financial barriers to attend.

The UCISA 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 colleagues who will benefit from the experience of attending WiT23, but whose institution would not have the budget for them to do so. As part of UCISA’s commitment to inclusion, we welcome referrals from colleagues from under-represented backgrounds.

Before referring a colleague, please ensure that you discuss with referral with them first and make them aware that to be eligible, they will be required to share their findings from the conference with their institutional colleagues’ post-event, as well as disseminate their experience in a multimedia format of their choice that may be published on the UCISA website and/or social media channels.

Referees must have a booked their place for the full WiT23 Conference by the deadline of 2 May 2023 and, in the bursary application form, explain the reasons why their nominated colleague deserves a bursary-funded place at WiT23.

Successful applicants will need to book (and pay for) their place at the conference through their institution in the normal way.  The institution may than claim a refund of the delegate fee of £175 + VAT from UCISA by completing a separate form to confirm that their delegate attended, shared their conference findings with colleagues and shared the agreed outputs with UCISA.
