Application Guidelines

1. The Local will award five personal development bursaries each semester to students who have presented research at an academic conference outside of the Thunder Bay area. Successful applicants will be reimbursed for the costs incurred to present their research, as proven with receipts, up to a maximum of $500 dollars. If more than five eligible applications are submitted, a lottery will be held to determine successful applicants.

2. To qualify for a bursary, members must complete the application form, along with evidence that the research was presented prior to the application deadline, complete with receipts detailing the costs incurred.

3. Professional development bursaries will be awarded towards the end of each semester. Application deadlines are as follows: August 1st, November 1st and March 1st.

4. Members can apply once for each conference that they have attended in the year prior to the membership meeting, as long as the member has not yet been awarded a personal development bursary for attendance at that conference.

5. Members who have submitted applications for more than one conference will only be awarded a maximum of one bursary per calendar year.

6. If all 15 bursaries are not awarded by the end of the academic semester, defined as the end of April, applicants failing to receive bursaries over the last year will be entered into a lottery to determine a recipient. Failing this, all remaining personal development bursaries will be awarded in the following academic year.
