The Humanities Computing and Media Centre, University of Victoria,
announces bursary awards for Canadian graduate students presenting at
the Digital Humanities 2006 conference, 5-9 July, in Paris,
France. http://www.allc-ach2006.colloques.paris-sorbonne.fr/

As hosts of the 2005 conference in Victoria, we wish to support a
limited number of graduate students who are enrolled in Canadian
universities, or who are Canadians enrolled as graduate students
elsewhere, to attend the the next conference, at the Sorbonne.

This is a one-time only offer, which will provide substantial
assistance for travel and other direct expenses, up to a pre-defined
maximum, for a limited number of candidates. The number and amounts
are TBA by the adjudication committee. (Note: Reimbursement of
expenses will only be against original receipts.)

To apply, candidates must provide the following information by the
deadline of February 28, 2006 (address below):
- proof of acceptance to present at the conference (results are
expected to be announced on February 13th, 2006)
- proof of "Canadian affiliation" as defined above (if studying
abroad, copy of proof of citizenship)
- proof of current graduate student status
- a brief letter of application explaining why you need the
assistance and how you expect to benefit from the conference
- a letter of support from your academic supervisor or equivalent
academic authority who knows your work and can attest knowledgeably
to the importance of your attending the conference (to be sent
together with all other documentation in a sealed envelope, signed
across the seal).

The Deadline for submission of Abstracts to the conference Program
Committee is November 14th, 2005 See: https://webcgi.oulu.fi/dh2006/
