A note on Conferences

In the past we collaborated with conferences all over the world, offering students a chance to attend for free. While recognizing the excellent opportunity for networking and development this offers, we’ve decided not to run this part of the program in 2020.

However, you may be able to source tickets to conferences via our friends at Diversity Tickets.
