IASCE Member Bursaries for conference attendance

In order to offer a benefit to our members and make it more possible for them to participate in IASCE organised or co-sponsored international conferences, IASCE has a bursary fund to enable current members to receive financial support for each conference. The bursary amount covers the costs of registration for the core part of conferences. The deadline for the 2019 conference has now passed and bursaries have been awarded.

Working in Partnership

Conference Partnerships

When engaging in conference work, IASCE regularly partners with other organizations. Sometimes IASCE partners with a host organization to co-sponsor a conference. Other times, IASCE supports the efforts of an organization wishing to organize a conference with a clear link to cooperation in education via the conference theme or a dedicated strand. To learn more about these two types of partnerships, please review the following two documents:

Guidelines for Co-Sponsored Conferences

Guidelines for the Support of Regional Conferences


Whenever possible, IASCE partners with an established journal to guest edit a publication that showcases samples of the rich body of work that is presented at IASCE co-sponsored conferences. To learn more, please review the following document:
