LAK Conference Scholarship

Brief Description of the Scholarship:

LAK22 Scholarship Now Available! 
SoLAR will again be supporting individuals who would otherwise not be able to attend the conference. With LAK22 taking place online once again, the Conference Scholarship this year will cover the full registration costs and will be granted to as many individuals as possible within a financial limit.

To be more precise, 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 virtual conference.
• 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. The applications will be reviewed by the Inclusion working group starting January 10 and will continue on a bi-weekly basis up until 10 days prior to the conference start date. Notifications will be sent out in the same rhythm.
