LAK Conference Scholarship

Brief Description of the Scholarship:


SoLAR will again be supporting individuals who would otherwise not be able to attend the conference. For the first time LAK will be a hybrid conference. Therefore, there will be opportunities for both in person and virtual conference attendance scholarships. Within the application process you must let the review committee know if you would like to be considered for the in person scholarship as numbers are very limited as they include contribution towards travel, accommodation and registration costs. Virtual scholarship awards cover the full registration cost. 

The purpose of the SoLAR Conference Scholarship is to support individuals working in or interested in the field of learning analytics (e.g., researchers, graduate students, teachers, and practitioners) who,

  • live and work in regions of the world that are underrepresented at LAK
  • are underrepresented in higher education
  • cannot afford the registration fee by themselves / would not get reimbursed by their institution

Therefore, in order to increase the diversity of LAK attendees, SoLAR will be collecting applications for conference scholarships to be awarded to successful applicants. Preference will be given to applicants who:

  • Are able to and will attend the full conference (in-person or virtual).
  • Are willing to write a short summary about their experience at LAK for SoLAR if requested.
  • Have limited or no opportunities to attend the conference without the scholarship (e.g. because they are living / studying / employed in a country underrepresented at LAK).

In order to apply for the SoLAR Conference Scholarship, please fill out the form below. If you are interested in being considered for the in person scholarship award, you must submit the application by December 1 to allow for processing and any associated visa processes. The applications will be reviewed by the Inclusion working group starting December 1. All virtual conference scholarship awards can continue to be submitted up until February 15, 2023.  Starting December 1, applications will be reviewed on a bi-weekly basis until the application deadline.
