NWILL Scholarships Available! Apply Today!

We are happy to announce that the Northwest Interlibrary Loan and Resource Sharing (NWILL) Conference Committee is committed to sponsoring the attendance of  ILL practitioners who would be unable to attend unless otherwise subsidized through our scholarship program.

Applicants will provide feedback during the conference as well as communicate what they hope to learn by attending the conference, and how they will share that information with others in their own libraries. Applicants are asked to demonstrate a true financial need.

Applications must be received by June 21, 2018. Scholarships will include a waived registration fee and $500 to cover travel expenses. The number of scholarships is dependent on the generosity of our sponsors. Recipients will be notified early July 2018.
