2025 Applications Open!


We are excited to announce that the British Assistive Technology Scholarship is now accepting applications for the 2025 AT Scholar program.

Established in 2020, the AT Scholar program seeks out talented UK professionals working in the field of Assistive Technology (AT) and AAC, to allow them to experience the world’s top event in the field.  Established 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 2025, as in previous years, AT Scholars will get the opportunity to attend the Assistive Technology Industry Associate (ATIA) Conference held the 30th of January to the 1st of February 2025, 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 Policy Connect. With their help we plan to further develop 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 2025 are now open. We welcome UK based professionals to apply by midnight on the 5th of July 2024. Successful applicants will be notified by early-September.
