The 2015 Library Technology Conference just announced that they will be awarding up to 10 scholarships to staff members from libraries and school media centers. These scholarships are for those who work in smaller or rural communities, as the conference wants to “promote library technology proficiency and awareness through attendance at the conference.” The nuts and bolts:
- applicants must work in a library or school media center in a city, town, or municipality with a population of 30,000 or lower
- applicants who have not previously been to the conference, or applicants outside of the 7-county Twin Cities metro area, will receive special consideration
- decisions will be largely based on the short statement (300 words or less) of how the applicant expects to benefit from attending the conference
- each scholarship will cover registration (for either one or both days) and one night of lodging at a conference hotel (for those travelling from outside of the 7-county Twin Cities metro area)
The 2015 Library Technology Conference is March 18th and 19th. All scholarship applications must be received by Monday, December 1st, 2014. Click here to apply!
