If you’re an early- or mid-career librarian working in a U.S. academic or health sciences library, and still looking for funding sources to attend a valuable conference between January and April 2018, we encourage you to submit your application. This award cycle closes on November 30.
The award is intended to help defray conference-related expenses for librarians with less than 15 years of experience after receiving their MLS or MLIS. Three cash awards are 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.
