DFP Conference Bursary Scheme
The DFP committee are pleased to be able to offer a number of bursaries to attend the Annual DFP Conference. These are open to all members of the DFP and are to attend the full three day conference.
Bursaries will cover the conference fees; however accommodation and travel costs will not be covered. Applicants would be required to arrange cover for their accommodation and travel costs.
The DFP intend for the bursaries to offer colleagues support and the opportunity for attending the conference which may contribute to aspects of their professional and/or academic development. It is not the DFP committee’s intention to substitute any responsibility from an employer to support their continuing professional development, but to offer the bursary in cases where the member does not have the financial resources despite trying to secure this.
The eligibility criterion for the bursary is:
The only way to apply for a bursary is by using the link below. No other form of application will be accepted
The application will open on Monday 19 February 2018 at 9:00am
The deadline to submit a bursary application is 11:59pm on Sunday 18 March 2018
Bursaries will be allocated based on the order in which they are received and any applications received prior to the above date or after teh closing date will not be considered. Incomplete, incorrect forms will not be accepted.
Successful bursary applicants from the previous years conference** need not apply for this years bursary.
**e.g. if you attended the Conference under the bursary scheme in 2017 you can not apply for 2018 bursary
Please note that if you are successful in obtaining a bursary and then fail to attend the conference without evidence of acceptable extenuating (non-work related) circumstances, then you will be charged the cost price for the place. This is to avoid the DFP paying colleagues who then choose simply not to attend. This incurs an unrecoverable cost to the divisional membership. This has unfortunately happened on DFP funded training events, so we are seeking to avoid this.
