CGVC Nigel W. John Scholarships

We are offering FIVE scholarships to cover registration at CVCG 2024 in memory of our late colleague Prof. Nigel W. John.

These are intended to increase access to the conference for students, and the diversity of participants.

They are available to any student who has not previously attended CVCG and will cover all registration costs.

To qualify, you must be a current student or recent graduate who is working, or has worked in a discipline that is cognate to CVCG.

To apply for a Nigel W. John scholarship please send the following to [email protected]:

  • subject “Nigel W. John Scholarship Application”, cc your academic supervisor or advisor, by JUNE 14TH:
  • your name, institution, discipline and stage of study
  • any contribution that you have submitted or intend to submit to CGVC 2024 (we encourage these, but you do not need to submit something to apply for a scholarship)
  • confirmation that you have not previously attended CGVC
  • a named academic supervisor or advisor who can confirm that you qualify (see above, please cc in the email)
  • a 100 word (max) supporting statement that explains why you would like to attend and how this will be beneficial

The organising committee will rank submissions based on the prospective benefit of conference attendance to each applicant and allocate the awards to five of these, with a maximum of two per institution.

Awards will be made by offering free registration (no cash or other alternatives), the organising committee’s decisions are final, no correspondence will be entered into.

CVCG 2024 starts on 12th September 2024, the day that Nigel’s son Marc plans to arrive at John O’Groats having ridden the length of the UK this year in memory of his Dad.
