#PSEWEB

#PSEWEB registration scholarships are aimed at removing the financial obstacles that make conference attendance challenging or impossible for some.

We especially encourage the following groups to apply:

  • underrepresented minorities (BIPOC, LGBTQ, Indigenous communities and other underrepresented voices)
  • individuals with reduced or no income (i.e. if you’ve been laid off or furloughed due to COVID-19)
  • new professionals
  • new grads
  • current or former work/study students considering a career in higher ed digital comms

If you work for an institution that has the ability to fund your attendance, we ask that you not apply to save funds for those without access to similar resources.
