Registrars can apply for financial support to (partially) cover their registration fees.  Please indicate on your registration form if you require partial funding. Registrars must register by the Early Bird closing date (31 May 2019) to be eligible for a subsidy. The subsidy may not cover the entire cost of registration but will cover a portion based on what is sponsored toward registrar registrations and based on how many registrars apply. All registrars applying for funding will receive an equal subsidy. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ANY PAYMENTS FOR REGISTRATION FEES TO APRASSA BEFORE YOU HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED ABOUT THE OUTCOME OF YOUR APPLICATION. You will need to make payment by 31 August 2019 to secure the subsidised rate.
