UCISA celebrates its 21st birthday with EUNIS bursary

Congratulations to our UK sister organisation UCISA which is celebrating its 21st birthday this year.

As part of the celebration UCISA has created a bursary scheme to help its UK members attend international conferences including EUNIS 2014.

UCISA members are increasingly looking beyond the UK for examples of innovation and good practice, whilst at the same time training budgets (especially for international conferences) are under pressure.

In celebration of UCISA’s 21st year, the Executive Committee of UCISA is pleased to announce that a bursary scheme has been created to bring European and US best practice to the UCISA community through funded places at EUNIS (11- 13 June 2014, Umeå University campus, Sweden www.eunis.org/eunis2014/ ) and EDUCAUSE (29 September – 2 October 2014, Orlando, Florida www.educause.edu/annual-conference/2014 )

Please consider applying for a bursary, or nominating staff within your institution.

Information on the selection process and the expected outputs is available on the UCISA website, along with an application form.

Deadline for receipt of applications: Tuesday 20 May
