ISLS & Wallace Foundation Scholarships for ISLS 2021

This year, ISLS is offering a limited number of scholarships using funds from the Wallace Foundation and ISLS to support students and scholars who otherwise would not be able to attend the ISLS Annual Meeting 2021 (June 7 – 11, 2021), held online. For students, the scholarships will cover early registration costs (and if needed, annual student-rate membership dues for 2021). For faculty, postdocs, and other postgraduate researchers, the scholarships will only cover early registration costs. These scholarship funds are intended to assist individuals facing financial challenges this year (particularly from historically underrepresented populations) and to broaden participation in the learning sciences community. Please share this announcement with colleagues, peers, and students who may be interested in attending ISLS 2021.

Conference registration fees or membership dues that have already been paid cannot be reimbursed through scholarship funds.

Review process: Applications will be reviewed and evaluated by the ISLS Membership Committee in the order that they are received. For any questions or other extenuating circumstances requiring financial support to participate in this year’s conference, please write to the Membership Committee Co-Chair Toshio Mochizuki:  [email protected]   (tmochi [at] mochi-lab.net)
