We are delighted to announce that Ace Centre has been given the opportunity to build on the success of the AT Scholar program.
Established in 2020, the British Assistive Technology Scholarship funds AT Scholars, talented UK professionals working in the field of Assistive Technology and AAC, to experience the world’s top event in the field. Started by Martin Littler FRSA, a co-founder of Inclusive Technology, who has championed AT Scholars’ attendance at ATIA to learn and share AT and AAC knowledge and skills on the international stage.
In 2024, as in previous years, AT Scholars will get the opportunity to attend the Assistive Technology Industry Associate (ATIA) Conference held 25th to 27th January 2024, in Orlando, Florida as well as offering a virtual platform. The scholarship funds the travel, accommodation and conference fees to attend ATIA and there will be a minimum expectation of AT Scholars to report their findings and share their experiences.

We look forward to working with a talented judging panel representing AT and AAC organisations from all over the UK including Communication Matters, Inclusive Technology, CENMAC, the British Assistive Technology Association and the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Assistive Technology. With their help we plan to further developing the AT Scholar scheme, to raise the profile of the excellent practice in the UK and to facilitate professional networks across the World.
Applications for AT Scholars 2024 are now open. We welcome UK based professionals to apply by midnight on the 30th of June 2023. Successful applicants will be notified by early-September.
