TUG 2016 Bursary applications

The TUG Bursary Fund provides assistance for members of the TeX community who would, for financial reasons, otherwise be unable to attend a TUG Conference.

Bursary applications for TUG 2016 in Toronto, Canada, should be sent by email to the Bursary Committee no later than April 8, 2016.

Guidelines

In order for the Bursary Committee to judge your application properly, write down as much relevant information as you can. Interesting bits of information include:

Simply put: you should ensure that your application is sufficiently detailed so as to enable the Committee to make an informed decision without having to get back to you.

Decisions and fine print

  1. Applications received after the deadline date will be considered only if funds are still available (not likely).
  2. All applications will be acknowledged by electronic mail.
  3. The Committee reserves the right to ignore applications that it deems unworthy.
  4. Applicants will be advised of the success or failure of their applications by electronic mail, which will be sent no later than May 8, 2016.
  5. The decision of the Committee is final; the Committee will not enter into further correspondence with unsuccessful applicants.
  6. All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence, and the identity of applicants will be known only to members of the Committee and to the President and the Executive Director of the TeX Users Group (for the purpose of distributing the awards). If it would be necessary to disclose the identity of an applicant to anyone else, explicit permission of the applicant will be sought beforehand.
  7. The details of individual awards will remain solely the knowledge of the Committee and of the successful applicants. The Committee will submit a summary of all applications and bursaries to the TUG Board, who may in turn elect to relay this summary information to bursary donors, TeX user groups, or other interested parties. The summary may also be posted on the TUG web site.
