Bristol Poverty Institute offers data bursaries to attend their conference

9 April 2021

The Bristol Poverty Institute (BPI) are delighted to formally announce our upcoming online conference on Poverty and the Sustainable Development Goals: From the Local to the Global on 27-29 April 2021. The BPI works extensively with partners from all over the globe and we are aware of some of the challenges our collaborators can face in accessing online events, such as the costs involved in using pay-as-you-go internet data. We are therefore delighted to announce that we are making up to 20 data bursaries available to conference attendees for whom data costs would be a barrier to participation.  

Please visit our website for furter information about the 2021 Conference.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all bursaries have been awarded or the deadline of Wednesday 21 April, whichever is sooner. This website will be updated as soon as all bursaries have been awarded, so please do check back before making your submission.  

These bursaries are for the equivalent of up to £10 (GBP) each, based on the currency exchange rates from on the day of submission. If the transaction will incur foreign exchange fees and/or charges we will also cover these costs to ensure the recipient receives their full bursary.  

Whilst these data bursaries are primarily intended for participants from Low- and Middle-Income Countries, we recognise that internet access can also be prohibitive for those in other countries. We will therefore accept applications from anyone in the world who is reliant on pay-as-you-go data to access the internet, including the UK.   

Attendees who wish to apply for a bursary need to complete the following form & send it to to

  • UK bank accounts: Bank sort code and account number. 

  • Non-UK bank accounts: IBAN number, Swift/BIC, routing number, and name of bank and address of bank.
