ACTA Conference Funding
The ATESOL ACT Committee agreed that an important role for our Association is supporting our members to attend the biennial ACTA conference. It was agreed that $5000 would be set aside to cover conference registration fees. This year the Early Bird members’ fee is $800. The closing date for Early Bird registrations is Friday 12th August
The conditions for receiving support are (1) you are a financial, honorary or student member of ATESOL ACT, (2) if your abstract has been accepted, you offer our Association members an opportunity to hear your paper before the conference, giving you an invaluable opportunity to try out your presentation on an interested audience, and (3) a copy of the conference registration receipt and proof attendance is sent to the ATESOL ACT President and Treasurer.
The point system for allocating these funds is as follows:
To request this support, please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading Request for ACTA conference support:
- Your conference abstract
- Acceptance/waiting list notification from the ACTA conference organisers
- A range of dates and times you would be available to present a draft of your paper, probably on Zoom
- A very brief outline (1-2 lines) of how you meet any of the other criteria listed above.
We will notify you if you have been successful on or before 12th August. We will only cover Early Bird registrations.
Your Committee is looking forward to hearing from you.
