Bursaries & Subsidies

In order to ensure the discussions at the 2019 ACOSS National Conference are rich, robust and inclusive it is important that people with lived experience of the issues discussed are contributing to the conversation. We understand that for many individuals and small organisations the cost of conference registration can be prohibitive. For this reason, ACOSS and partners work together to establish a comprehensive bursary program that provides subsidised registration, travel and accommodation across a range of bursaries.

ACT Government Scholarships

We are pleased to announce that the ACT Government has kindly established 4 scholarships for people with disability residing in the Australian Capital Territory.

The scholarships will cover the cost of full Conference registration, including the opportunity to attend the HESTA Community Sector Awards Dinner, travel and any additional supports required to attend and participate fully in the ACOSS National Conference 2019.
