Partial Fee Waiver on Registration

The Organizers will consider providing a partial conference fee waiver to attendees who have both a demonstrated financial need and a history of being involved in pro bono and/or community service projects directed towards helping the poor and marginalized.

The Conference fees will not be waived entirely and will be based upon the applicants needs. Presenting a paper, speaking, or volunteering at the conference does not guarantee a partial fee waiver, but it may assist in your application for a waiver. If a partial fee waiver is granted, the delegate is expected to attend the entire conference and workshop (unless otherwise discussed and agreed to prior to the conference start date). A fee waiver does not include the cost of transportation or accommodation; these costs must be covered by the participant.

Each year, the Asia Pro Bono Conference is run on a revenue-neutral basis meaning we use any surplus to subsidise the attendance of regional “Pro Bono Champions” who could not otherwise afford to attend. Each partial fee waiver received is reviewed and will be granted based upon the applicant’s eligibility according to the criteria below and availability of funding. Applicants will be given the result of their application within 2-4 weeks of submission.

Please see the criteria below and read carefully before continuing on the application form.

To be eligible for a partial fee waiver for the 7th Asia Pro Bono Conference:

  1. Applicant is involved in pro bono, access to justice and/or community service projects directed towards helping the poor and marginalized.
  2. Applicant is financially unable to pay the Conference registration fee
  3. Applicant is a local delegate or regional partner.
  4. Applicant is able to attend the entire conference.
  5. Applicant can demonstrate that they have tried to find additional financial support to attend the event. E.g. Fundraising, funding applications etc.
  6.  Applicant has the financial means to provide their own transportation and accommodation costs for the full duration of the Conference.
  7. If applicant has previously received a waiver to attend the Asia Pro Bono Conference they must be able to demonstrate how attending the Conference impacted their work, and how they continued to strengthen the Pro Bono Movement.
