The application deadline for TUG 2009 was Friday, April 17, 2009 (for the conference held at the University of Notre Dame from July 28 through July 31, 2009).
Four applications for Bursary awards were received prior to the deadline.
The Bursary Committee examined the four applications and voted to fund all of them. Two awardees were not able to accept the award. As a result, only two awards were made.
The two applicants who received awards were from France and the United States. The total amount awarded was $1250.
The Bursary Committee for 2009 was composed of Jana Chlebikova, Bogusław Jackowski, Kaja Christiansen, Alan Wetmore and Sam Rhoads (Chairman).
