In addition to the student bursary, PALA also offers small bursaries from the Roger Fowler/ Mary Ellen Ryder fund to support those wishing to attend the conference who are either unwaged or from developing countries. The fund is maintained by the generous donations of PALA members and others, and the number of bursaries that are able to be awarded depends on available funds. If you wish to make an application for a bursary from this fund please contact Joe Bray at
