Financial support and bursaries
WES likes to help as many people as possible to attend conference: people out of work, self employed, on low incomes, on careers breaks, retired and students. Through generous sponsorship and donations we are able to offer some help.
Applications should be made in writing by email to email@example.com . Please ensure your email title is BURSARY APPLICATION

A limited number of student / low income / self employed places have been supported through the generosity of WES member donors and the delegate rate lowered to £25. In addition Jaguar Land Rover have further sponsored 12 student places which will include refund of your student fee, some help for travel for those who live a long way from London along with a lunchtime opportunity to talk with JLR employees.

Terms and conditions
The bursary programme is administered by the conference committee chair in dialogue with nominated committee members.
1. Successful applicants will be notified by 1 October 2011. Successful applicants will be asked to write a short article for the WES journal about one of the talks they attended.
2. Our bursaries do not usually cover the full conference cost and travel and accommodation. We have found in the past that bursaries have been accepted and then not taken up if recipients have shown no personal financial commitment. Registration should be completed using the Student registration option.
3. Cheques for JLR bursaries will be handed to recipients on registration at conference.
