Stipend Application

PETS is committed to supporting the full participation of a diverse range of students, scholars, activists and professionals within the PETS community and at its annual symposium, and recognizes that financial and logistical constraints can be a barrier for many.

To help make PETS more accessible, each year we use money raised through sponsorships to help offset costs for attendees who need support in order to join the PETS symposium, whether in person or, if applicable, online.

If you are interested in the PETS symposium and cannot access sufficient resources from your organization to attend, we encourage you to apply for stipend support. Yes! We appreciate the irony of a privacy-focused organization asking for some very personal information. The reality is that the sponsorship funds we use to provide stipends often comes with restrictions and requirements about how it can be used. So while providing any of the information requested in the stipend application is completely optional, providing as much information as possible below allows us to more equitably distribute the funding we have available.

The priority deadline for applications is 15 May 2024. After this date, applications will be considered on a rolling basis with the final cut-off being 30th of June 2024. Stipends are limited by the funding we have available so we cannot guarantee that we can fulfill all requests or to support them in full. An early application is advised.

If you have questions or concerns about the stipend process, please feel free to reach out to the stipend committee at
