ISC/SCI announces new bursary for diversity

The Indexing Society of Canada / Société  canadienne d’indexation (ISC/SCI) has announced its Diversity in Canadian Publishing Bursary.

This bursary is part of the ISC/SCI’s special program to contribute to filling a proven lack of diverse voices and the demand for them in the Canadian publishing industry by helping to achieve equality of opportunity for aspiring indexers belonging to underrepresented and/or marginalized groups.

The application deadline for the 2020 bursary is April 1. It will be granted to one person and will cover fees for an approved indexing program, two years of ISC/SCI membership with listing, and entry into the Mary Newberry Mentorship program.

Please check out the bursary application for more information, including eligibility requirements. Pass this information far and wide!

The program is administered by the ISC/SCI Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Committee (TIDE). To learn more, visit the committee page or contact tide@indexers.ca.

Bursary for Structurally Disadvantaged People

We were able to secure funding from the Special Projects committee for our very first bursary!

The Bursary for Structurally Disadvantaged People is for one person, and it will cover fees for an indexing course, two years of ISC membership with listing, and entry into the Mentorship program.

The Inclusivity, Diversity and Equity committee (TIDE) is a very small committee and we will be needing more people to join in to help develop and organize the bursary. Please get in touch to help out! siusanmoffat (at.) gmail (dot) com
