ACAL Conference scholarship

Most years ACAL provides a scholarship for someone to attend the conference who would otherwise not be able. In the past we have supported people from Timor-Leste, Vanuatu and people from Australian community organisations.

This year our ACAL Conference Scholarship will support an Indigenous adult literacy and numeracy practitioner to attend the 2016 conference and develop their practice and networks.

Applications must be submitted by 5pm AEDT, March 4, 2016.
