Interested in our bursary program? Read all the information on this page, then download and complete the following forms by February 15, 2017:
C2UExpo 2017 will be offering a limited number of bursaries to help students and community members to help cover various expenses related to the conference, including registration fees, accommodations, meals, and travel. If you are interested in applying, please complete the application and send it to cuexpo@sfu.ca with the subject line “Bursary” by 4:00pm EST on February 15, 2017.

Due to limited funding available, applications will be reviewed and assessed based on the eligibility below, financial need, and distribution across a range of disciplines and geographical regions. Once existing funds are depleted, bursaries will no longer be available. Bursary amounts are determined based on estimated expenses submitted as part of the application.

  • Priority will be given to students and community members who are already confirmed presenters (including poster presenters)
  • You must be a registered post-secondary student and have completed at least 1 term of your degree/diploma

Conference Equity Policy 
C2UExpo 2017 is committed to achieving and maintaining a diverse conference makeup and to initiating special measures as required to ensure full participation of delegates and presenters from groups that have traditionally been underrepresented, to enable them to access the conference on an equal basis. The groups designated for measurement of conference equity include, but are not limited to, women, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, racialized or visible minorities, and persons identifying as part of the LGBTQ community. 

How will the bursary be distributed? 
Bursaries will be awarded in the form of direct payment to C2UExpo2017 for registration fees. In order to cover travel costs, recipients must pay for all travel expenses up front, and then submit original receipts, boarding passes, etc. for reimbursement. 

Application Timeline 
Bursary applications are due by 4:00pm EST on February 15, 2017. Bursary recipients will be notified by March 1st, 2017. If you have any questions regarding the C2UExpo 2017 Student Bursaries, please send them to cuexpo@sfu.ca
