Bursaries for TechCon

TechCon is an excellent meeting of minds for people who want to learn about and discuss the role of technology in media and broadcasting. So it’s great to see that a bursary scheme has been established that will help CMA, SRA & SWN members attend.

The bursary schemes are intended to encourage people who are from underrepresented groups, or have financial barriers, to attend the event. There are two types of bursary.

The ‘Individual’ bursary allows any individual from an underrepresented background, or who faces a financial barrier, to apply for a free ticket.

The closing date is 31st October, after which the winning recipients will be contacted. There are six ‘Individual’ bursaries, jointly sponsored by Brun Audio Consulting, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), Ann Charles Media and Clockhouse Media.

The ‘Organisation’ bursary has been awarded to the Student Radio Association, Community Media Association, and Sound Women Network. Each group has received three free tickets to give to their members.

This bursary is jointly sponsored by the event’s main sponsors: Broadcast Bionics, Arqiva, the IET, Broadcast Radio, RCS and Preco.
