What does Sponsorship cover?
If you are selected to attend the conference, Student Sponsorship covers:
- Two nights accommodations (Sunday and Monday) at the Hyatt Regency Calgary (contact Iris to discuss if you are coming in from outside Alberta.)
- Your Registration Fee to attend AWC WEST 2023 Conference (including workshops, plenary sessions, reception, banquet, breakfasts, lunches and networking coffee breaks)
What is the Student responsible for?
- Students are responsible for all travel-related and additional expenses incurred. Please plan for this prior to submitting your application.
- It is mandatory that sponsored students attend the entire conference. Failure to do so could result in sponsorship being revoked. If sponsorship is revoked, the student will be required to pay all expenses incurred.
- No application will be accepted after the deadline date.
