Call for Applicants: Two Rounds of Value of Academic Libraries Travel Scholarships (Deadlines 8/31/18 and 2/15/19)

(via the Association of College and Research Libraries)

The Association of College and Research Libraries is pleased to announce a new round of the Value of Academic Libraries Travel Scholarships. The ACRL Board of Directors has allocated $10,000 in fiscal year 2019 to offer travel scholarships of up to $2,000 each for librarians presenting on their work demonstrating the impact of academic libraries in the broader landscape of higher education.

ACRL invites practicing librarians and information professionals to apply for funding to present their work at higher education conferences or disciplinary conferences where they will reach audiences outside the library field. The presentations may be based on practice-based work or formal research projects. Two rounds of applications will be reviewed in the coming year. The first are due August 31, 2018. The second round of applications will be due February 15, 2019.

Complete details on the Value of Academic Libraries Travel Scholarships, including how to apply, are available on the ACRL website.
