DCDC19 Bursaries

Open, inclusive and collaborative in its ethos, the DCDC Conference brings together an unparalleled variety of experiences drawn from across the UK, Europe, and further afield. The conference has now become a well-established event on the cultural, heritage and academic calendars.

Each year DCDC brings together over 400 colleagues from across the archive, library, museum, heritage and academic sectors. We are proud that the conference appeals to delegates from all career stages, from established academics and practitioners, to those just starting out. Equality, diversity and inclusion have been prominent themes in recent conferences, and we wish to ensure that these values remain at the core of DCDC, and that we continue to include the widest range of voices, experiences and backgrounds in our discussions.

This year, we are delighted to offer 5 bursaries, funded by The National Archives, for people who would otherwise not be able to attend the conference. These will cover attendance at the conference itself, including the welcome social and conference dinner, economy rate travel and accommodation for the duration of the conference.
