Conference Scholarship

LAK21 Conference Scholarship is now accepting applications!

Following up from the conference scholarship last year, SoLAR will again be supporting individuals who would otherwise not be able to attend the conference. With LAK21 taking place online, the Conference Scholarship this year will cover the full registration costs and will be granted to as many 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 the 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 on a bi-weekly basis and notifications will be sent out in that same rhythm.
