ucisa Bursary scheme

ucisa bursary scheme supports IT and IT-related staff in the education sector

 

ucisa fully appreciates the pressure that our HE/FE colleagues are under at present. In particular, we understand that all IT personnel are needed, perhaps more than ever, within their institutions in the coming weeks as they implement the digital solutions that are at the heart of every institution’s response plans.

 

In light of the current global health situation; the advice from government and the needs of our sector IT departments, the 2020 ucisa bursary scheme has been postponed.

 

Where will the ucisa bursary take you?  

The application portal to apply for a 2020 bursary will open very soon.  In the meantime, you can find out more about this year's scheme - including recommended conferences and application questions - here

Introduced in 2014 to celebrate ucisa's 21st year, the bursary scheme is now an annual initiative for the ucisa membership. Funding from the ucisa bursary scheme gives IT and IT-related staff the opportunity to attend conferences and keynote technology events they might otherwise be unable to attend.

We were delighted to receive 72 applications in 2019. Details of the 23 recipients and their chosen conferences is available

Candidates were asked to:

  • set out how they would represent ucisa at the conference they were requesting funding for,
  • outline how the conference would benefit them personally (and their department/institution) and
  • demonstrate how they would share what they have learned with the ucisa community and the higher and further education sectors, and how they would publicise good practice within the UK. 

Some recipients chose to write up blog posts on their experiences at the event and these are all available in the News and Views section of the website.
