The Irish Statistical Association is providing bursaries of up to €2,500 for the running of short courses related to postgraduate education and/or continuing professional development. Each eligible third level university (UCD, TCD, UCC, NUIG, NUIM, UL, QUB, and UU Coleraine) may avail of these funds once per year. Funds may be used to cover workshop deliverer’s expenses, an honorarium, or any other expense incurred in organising and running a short course. If surplus funds remain after a course has run, these can be used to subsidise students or returned to the ISA.
In order to qualify for the funds the institution must make the course available to ISA members. The ISA will advertise the course to members and put registration information on the ISA website. See http://istat.ie/drupal/events/short-courses for more details (and application form).
