Round 3 – ALDinHE Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Funding Opportunity for conference attendance

ALDinHE recognises that certain minority groups are under-represented in Higher Education (HE) employment or face barriers to progression in their HE careers through lack of opportunities. To address this and to encourage diversity within the conference space, applications are now open for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) funding opportunities to support attendance and presentation at the ALDinHE 2023: The Learning Development Conference (ALDcon23) in June 2023. We actively welcome applications from black and minority ethnic heritage communities, delegates with disabilities and the LGBTQIA+ community.
Funding will cover the cost of registration to the event only per proposal. Travel and accommodation costs, and any additional sundries will not be covered.

Criteria for round 3:
Applicants must have an accepted proposal for ALDcon23 taking place on 9th and 13th-14th June 2023.
Accepted proposals can be for the virtual day on 9th June and/or in person on 13th-14th June at the University of Portsmouth.
Joint or multiple authored proposals will be treated as a single submission. Applications should be made by the lead author, with at least one member of the presenting team identifying as being from one or more of the under-represented groups listed above.

Round 4 – Fixed-term contract staff ring funding:

This category includes staff working on fixed-term contracts with institutions that will not fund them to attend the conference and to independent contract staff. Independent contractors or fixed-term staff working for institutions who are not members must be individual ALDinHE members. Applicants must be presenting at the conference in order to receive funding for their ticket.

Request by application: ALDinHE Conference Fund Application Form

Delegates may apply formally using the Request by application: ALDinHE Conference Fund Application Form, and places are allocated upon successful application by the two Association Co-Chairs and two members of the Steering Group.

Indicative criteria:
Being a member of the Association, either Non-Institutional or through an Institutional member.
Having a workshop or paper accepted for this conference AND/OR contributing to ALDinHE through active involvement in a Working Group, hosting an event, contributing to the journal, or substantially contributing to LDHEN.
Applications will be accepted from registration opening until 15th May 2023.
All decisions are final.
