Bursaries available for 2015 BAC conference

We are delighted to announce that the Business Archives Council will be providing five bursaries for the 2015 BAC Conference to be held on Tuesday 10th November at The Prudential Assurance Company Building in London: http://www.businessarchivescouncil.org.uk/activitiesobjectives/conference/


In order to apply, you:

• Do not need to be a member of the BAC

• Must not be in full-time employment

• Must be interested in pursuing a career in archives and records management

What the bursary means:

We will expect something in return for a bursary. There will be nothing too arduous and responsibilities will be assigned to you. To give some examples of the tasks you might be asked to carry out, past bursary winners have helped to document the day by tweeting, taking photographs, or writing a short article for the BAC newsletter.

Attending the conference will also be a fantastic chance for you to network and increase your profile in the sector. We will also make sure you have the opportunity to meet members of the BAC.

How to apply: To apply for a bursary, please email bacconference@gmail.com with your details and a maximum of 200 words on your interest in Business Archives and why you merit a bursary.

The deadline for applications is 15th September 2015. The successful applicants will be contacted before the end of September.

Please note that the bursaries will cover the cost of the conference fee only - bursary winners will still need to cover any travel costs to and from the conference.
