ECP & Lived Experience Bursary

Bursaries for Early Career Professionals and Individuals with Lived Experience

CHRA offers a limited number of partial bursaries to Early Career Professionals and Individuals with Lived Experience attending Congress to help offset travel and accommodation expenses. Discounted registration rates for Congress and Pre-Congress sessions are also available.

Selection will be made on a first-come, first-serve basis, and in relation to geographic equity. Preference will also be given to those who have submitted a Call for Proposals for Congress 2017, and have been selected to speak.

Individuals selected for a bursary are required to register and pay to attend Congress at the discounted rate in order to be eligible, and are responsible for arranging their own travel and accommodation.
