NUS Black Students Winter Conference 2016

Applications are now open for Students’ Union funding to the NUS Black Students Winter Conference. Black Students Winter Conference is open to any student of African, Arab, Asian or Caribbean heritage and provides training and networking opportunities. This year, it will take place in London School of Economics Students’ Union on Saturday 26th November and Sunday 26th November.

NUS have suggested five reasons you might want to go to the conference on their website.

This conference will offer students the chance to hear about and get involved in the national Black Students Campaigns, meet students from other Universities and get involved in the National Union of Students. The Student’s Union has a pot of funding held by the Executive Committee for sending students to conferences, and this is done on an application basis. The funding will include your travel, accommodation and food costs as well as any delegate fees.

To apply please download, complete and send a Conference Application Form and an Equality and Diversity Monitoring Form to juliette.c@sussexstudent.com by Friday 4th November at midday. Applications made after this are not guaranteed to be considered.
