Bursary Guidance TRAC prides itself on widening participation and promoting inclusivity in Roman Archaeology and traditionally offers bursaries for delegates to attend the annual conference. For TRAC 2020 bursaries are kindly provided by The Roman Society and Barbican Research Associates. TRAC bursaries are available to anyone attending the conference regardless of employment sector/educational status; however, preference will be given to those not currently in academic employment or without PhD funding. We would also recommend that delegates apply to additional sources of funding for the event. The bursaries awarded should be used towards any of the following costs: Delegate registration fees (including conference events/dinners). Travel to/from the conference. Accommodation. Childcare or accommodation/travel of care giver. Any other costs which might otherwise prohibit your attendance. If you wish to apply for a TRAC bursary, please e-mail the below information to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be asked to provide the following information: Name Affiliation (If applicable) Course (if a student) Postal Address Title of your paper/poster and the session in which it will be presented (if applicable) Case for financial hardship and an explanation of how the bursary would be spent (max. 500 words) After the event each recipient will be required to write a paragraph detailing the usefulness of the conference and bursary, and an outline of how the funds were spent. Delegates must also write to thank the organisation which funded your award, as without them these bursaries would not be possible. Successful applicants will be awarded funds from one of the following appropriate bursary types: Bursaries will be paid to successful applicants in the UK by cheque, and to overseas applicants by bank transfer. This is usually processed following the conference once receipts for relevant expenses have been provided, but we can also process this before the conference if all expenses claimed for have been paid out and receipts retained. For many years the TRAC Standing Committee, with support from its sponsors, has offered bursaries for delegates to attend the annual conference and other TRAC events. Full details of these bursaries and instructions on how to apply are available here.
