If you’re an early- or mid-career academic or health sciences librarian who’s planning to attend a conference next spring, there’s still time apply for the APA Librarian Conference Travel Award!
Now through November 30, 2019, we are accepting applications for conferences taking place from January to April 2020. This includes – but is not limited to – the National Institute on the Teaching of Psychology, ALA Midwinter, Electronic Resources & Libraries, Code4Lib, and the Annual Conference on the First Year Experience.
The award is intended to help offset conference-related expenses for librarians with less than 15 years of experience after receiving their MLS or MLIS degree. One cash award is distributed three times each calendar year, and the application cycle opens and closes on a rolling basis.
At this time, we are not limiting the conferences that are eligible for travel award funding. Applicants should identify the conference that best meets their professional needs and explain how attendance will support their current duties and future goals.
Please see the website for more details on eligibility, deadlines, and application materials. Applicants should note that the essay is the heart of the application and use it to make a compelling case for attending the chosen conference. The essay should describe what the applicant expects to learn, and how this knowledge will impact the work done with or on behalf of students, faculty, and other constituents.
Questions about the APA Librarian Conference Travel Award should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please help us spread the word by sharing this information with colleagues and friends who may be eligible!
