ALA Annual Conference travel award

In the past few weeks we have been sending out several stipend opportunities to attend the SLA Annual Conference in New Orleans this June. We have received a travel award opportunity that is for the American Library Association (ALA) annual conference. These conferences provide a fantastic networking opportunity. Details are listed below.


Send in your nominations!

The deadline for submissions for the 2010 Gale/Cengage Student Travel award has been extended until: March 1, 2010. Please forward this to your local library school listserv or to any other potential candidates!

The BRASS Gale/Cengage Student Travel award is a $1000 cash award given to a student enrolled in an ALA accredited master's degree program to fund travel to and attendance at the ALA Annual Conference and a one-year membership in the Business Reference and Services Section (BRASS) of RUSA. Applicants should have demonstrated interest in a career as a business reference librarian, and a potential to be a leader in the profession as demonstrated by activities that may include (but are not limited to) coursework, internships, jobs, special projects, and publications.
