We’ve got some extra money this year in the Northern Voice coffers, and have decided to spend it on a travel bursary program:
This year Northern Voice is offering six travel bursaries of CAN $500 each. The organizing committee will be awarding these bursaries based on a number of criteria, including:
- The contributions you can make to the conference
- Your level of need
- The quality of your submission
- The diversity you might bring to Northern Voice
There was considerable debate among the organizers about how to divy up the money (3 at $1000? 10 at $300?), and what criteria to use in awarding it. We figured that $500 pays for your flight here from nearly anywhere in North America, and might help some people attend who otherwise couldn’t afford to.
Of course, if you live in Chilliwack but can make a strong enough case, we’d award one to you.
