ACBS WC Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Scholarship Application

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee of the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science is pleased to offer a limited number of registration fee scholarships to support participation in the ACBS World Conference Buenos Aires, Argentina 23-28 July, 2024.

To be eligible for these DEI Committee Conference Scholarships, applicants must complete the following application detailing their motivations to attend the conference, as well as a plan for how to use the knowledge and resources gained at the conference in the pursuit of their careers.

The available scholarships include conference fee waivers. In addition, some of the scholarships may include a small amount of funding to assist with travel costs (this amount will likely change or vary by scholar). If your scholarship includes funds to off-set some of the cost of your travel, the ACBS staff will provide reimbursement of the awarded amount at the conference. Most scholars will be responsible for all of their own travel expenses, as needed. The scholarship must be used in in the year awarded and can not be delayed to future years.

Priority will be given to applicants who come from a diverse background, who have not attended an ACBS World Conference before, who demonstrate financial need in order to be able to attend, and who live in countries near the region where the conference is taking place.

Scholarship recipients will be required to submit a written report of how they have utilized what they have learned or connections they have made during the ACBS conference within 6 months following the conference.

If awarded, the registration portion of this scholarship is only valid for the upcoming World Conference and may only be used to offset the main conference registration fees (the scholarship may not be applied to any other expense). If an individual is awarded more than one scholarship in the same conference year, the total value of all scholarships may not exceed the total cost of the ACBS World Conference registration fee.

These scholarships are made possible by donations from ACBS members and ACBS. Continued disbursement and focus of these scholarships will be contingent on availability of future funding. (Able to donate? Please go here.)

For any questions, please contact Lucia Loureiro.
