Enrichment Bursary

The Enrichment Bursary is to support new and unaffiliated artists/scholars/activists, particularly these from under-represented groups, to attend the PSi conference and make a contribution.  The Enrichment Bursary covers the costs of attending the annual PSi conference, including accommodation and registration fee, but not travel expenses.  It is paid for and awarded by the conference organizers who oversee and conduct the reviewing process.  Only applicants who have already had their proposal for a presentation accepted by the organizers of the current PSi conference can receive the award.


How do I apply?

Applicants should submit a maximum 250 paragraph qualifying their eligibility for the award, the abstract for their presentation, evidence of acceptance to the conference, and a one-page CV to PSi’s Awards Officer, Beau Coleman (bc2@ualberta.ca). Please put ‘Enrichment Bursary Application’ in the subject line of your email. The submission deadline for 2022 will be announced here.


How will the recipient of the bursary be decided?

The recipient of the PSi Enrichment Bursary will be decided by the PSi conference’s Program Committee based on eligibility criteria and on the review scores for the presentation proposal.


What does the bursary consist of?

The Enrichment Bursary covers the costs of accommodation and conference registration fees, as well as 1 year’s membership of PSi.  Accommodation costs will be covered at a hotel to be agreed upon between the applicant and the Program Directors of the PSi conference and only for the duration of the conference.


When will I know the result of my application?

The date for application results will be announced.
