Applications that meet the eligibility criteria and complete all required fields will be de-identified and assessed by a panel determined by PCA.

PCA has the right to withdraw and recover funds of the scholarship at any stage if incorrect, false or misleading information is provided.
The scholarship funds are not transferable to alternative participants, such as another colleague. If the successful applicant is no longer able to attend the conference, they must advise PCA immediately and return any honorarium they have received.
Successful applicants who do not attend the full conference, take part in the scholarship activities onsite (including a group photo*, meet and greet) or complete the evaluation survey, may be asked to return their scholarship funds in part or in full.
