Partial Fee Waiver on Registration

The starting point is that all attendees to the Conference must pay a registration fee, this applies equally to everyone including the volunteer organisers and presenters. This is because the registration fees pay for the costs of running the Conference.  

But in recognition that the requirement to pay the full registration fee may cause some attendees financial hardship or otherwise prohibit them from attending and contributing to the Conference, the registration fee in part may be waived on the basis of the attendee’s need and merit (“Partial Fee Waiver”). 

The Organizers will consider providing a partial 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, 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 (unless otherwise discussed and agreed to prior to the conference start date). A partial fee waiver does not include the cost of the conference dinner, 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. Whenever possible, applicants will be given the result of their application within 3-4 weeks of submission.

 

The deadline for submitting your partial fee waiver application is
July 31, 2019
