EconoUs2018 is pleased to offer a Bursary Program to enable Indigenous peoples based in the Maritimes to attend the conference.
The EconoUs2018 planning partners believe that Indigenous communities have much to contribute in the theory and practice of community economic development. Recognizing the financial barrier to attendance for many, the Indigenous Bursary Program is a modest fund developed to reduce the cost of participation for Indigenous individuals and organizations. Much work needs to be done to improve relations between non-Indigenous Canadians and Indigenous peoples. EconoUs2018 is an opportunity to explore strategies to not just foster ‘an economy that works for all’ but to foster a society that includes and benefits everyone.
Who is eligible?
Indigenous people (First Nations status/non-status, Métis, Inuit and Indigenous Peoples from outside of Canada) or individuals working for an indigenous organization based in the Maritimes (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island) who would otherwise not be able to attend EconoUs2018.
What is paid by the bursary program?
Bursary recipients will receive 80% off registration (full conference or one-day only; does not include tours).
Applicants will be informed of a decision by September 10th. Bursaries will be available as long as funds exist in the bursary pool. The earlier you submit your application the better your chances of receiving a bursary. Submitting an application does not guarantee the receipt of a bursary.
