Inclusivity applications are now closed. Thank you for your interest. The form remains here for completeness but new applications will not be reviewed. Thank you.

We have awarded six places mostly to students or other presenters with no other source of funds. This was made possibly by the OER13 organising committee and sponsorship. 


We have aimed to make our charges for this event reasonable in order to be as inclusive as possible. However if cost is a genuine barrier and you would like to submit an abstract, or if you are a student, from small FE organisation or a member of the public with a special interest in OER wanting to attend OER14 please complete the form below or contact us to discuss your options. Both national and international applications will be considered, but please note that we are unable to refund travel. We have a small amount of funding that we can use to help subsidise registration and accommodation. Please note terms and conditions below (including cancellation charges).

Terms and conditions

  • This funding option is specifically available to unfunded projects and individuals, teaching and support staff and students, members of the public who are not otherwise supported by aorganisation. 
  • Those working in HEIs and large FE Colleges (400+fte HE equivalent) are not eligible to apply
  • The funds available to cover registration and accommodation costs are limited and will be decided by the OER committee, signed off by the Treasurer, on merit. Travel must be met from elsewhere. 
  • There is no appeal procedure once a decision has been made. 
  • You may be required to provide evidence of your circumstances in order to qualify (e.g student number, line manager’s letter, etc.). 
  • Any inaccuracy in the description of your circumstances will lead to any awards being withdrawn.
  • If you are awarded financial help but are unable to attend you must inform us as soon as possible. ‘No-show places will result in a request for full payment for attendance being re-instated as this would prevent another from taking up a funded place.
