The International AI in education (IAIED) Society will support individuals who would otherwise not be able to attend the AIED2022 conference.
Who can apply?
The purpose of the AIED Conference Scholarship is to support participation at AIED2022 from people who fall in at least one of the groups below:
- live and work in regions of the world that are underrepresented at AIED (e.g., Africa, Asia-Pacific, South America, and Western Asia);
- are from demographic groups underrepresented at AIED or in Higher Education in their country/region (e.g., minority ethnic groups, neurodiverse, persons with disabilities, parents/carers, lower socio-economic status);
- cannot afford the registration fee by themselves and/or would not be reimbursed by their institution.
Preference will be given to PhD student applicants who are willing and able to attend the full conference, and who (a) have been accepted for the Doctoral Consortium and/or (b) have an accepted full or short paper, poster or late-breaking results presentation, or plan to submit a paper and participate in workshops. Applications from early career researchers are also encouraged.
What does the scholarship cover?
The IAIED Conference Scholarship will cover the full registration costs (Virtual or On-Site). Support will be granted to as many applicants as possible within a financial limit.
In addition to the registration support, a small number of travel support scholarships (up to £500) will be provided to those who will attend in person.
What is expected from the scholarship recipients?
The recipients of the scholarships will be expected to actively participate in the conference. They will be asked to join the student volunteer programme, as agreed with the local organisers.
After the conference, the scholarship recipients will be required to send a short report with their reflection on the AIED2022 experience.
How will the applications be reviewed?
The applications will be reviewed by members of the AIED2022 committee, including the scholarship chair and the diversity and inclusion chairs.
How will the payment be made?
Scholarship recipients will be reimbursed after the conference against evidence of the expenses incurred.
