ICA Congress Bursary Program

We are pleased to announce the Abu Dhabi 2023 Bursary Program, which will provide funding assistance for up to 300 individuals to travel to Abu Dhabi and attend the Congress in October 2023.

The Bursary Program is designed to enable as many people as possible to actively participate in the Congress, especially those that may otherwise lack the financial means to come to Abu Dhabi. The program is a part of our aim to have a dynamic, diverse and representative community in Abu Dhabi to discuss the issues that matter most to our profession.

Depending on the particular needs of the recipient, the bursaries may cover all or some of the following expenses:

  • Return economy airfare to Abu Dhabi from the recipient’s closest airport.
  • UAE airport transfers, in shared coaches.
  • Hotel accommodation, with breakfast included.
  • Congress registration – which provides food and beverage during the Congress, venue transfers in shared coaches.
  • Application fees for a UAE Visa.

The call for applications will open in March 2023 and will be announced on www.abudhabi2023.ae and www.ica.org. An on-line application form will be provided, along with a more detailed explanation of the process for evaluation and selection of bursary recipients.
