Thanks to the generous support of the conference sponsors, the ICTD2010 conference organisers have recently been able to announce a further call for scholarships. All applications must be on the appropriate form, and need to satisfy at least one of the following criteria:
- Have had a paper accepted, or be a speaker in an accepted session (including posters, workshops and demos) at the conference.
- Be from a country ranked below 100th on the latest Human Development Index (as at 1st June 2010)
- Be studying for a postgraduate degree
- Be on a low income (if applying on these grounds, the most recent payslip must be attached as proof of income)
Those who submitted unsuccessful applications in the first round will automatically be reconsidered, and must not submit new applications (otherwise they will be excluded).
More than 60 scholarships were awarded in the first round (from more than 170 applications), and it is hoped that a further 20 scholarships may be offered, covering some or all of the following: registration fee, accommodation and travel.
