Reminder: APA Travel Award Applications Due Friday, November 30

(via Stephanie Davis-Kahl, Illinois Wesleyan University)

Do you work in an academic or health sciences library in the United States? Are you an early- or mid-career librarian? Are you looking for sources of funding for a conference you’d like to attend next spring?

If the answer to all of those questions is yes, please consider applying for an APA Librarian Conference Travel Award! Through Friday, November 30, 2018, we are accepting applications for conferences taking place from January – April 2019. This includes – but is not limited to – the National Institute on the Teaching of Psychology, ALA Midwinter, Electronic Resources & Libraries, Code4Lib, and the Annual Conference on the First Year Experience. The award recipient will be selected in early to mid-January.

The award is intended to help defray conference-related expenses for librarians with less than 15 years of experience after receiving their MLS. 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.

Please see our website for more details on eligibility, deadlines, and application materials. Applicants should note that the essay is the heart of the application and use it to make a compelling case for attending the conference selected. The essay should describe what the applicant expects to learn from the conference, and how this knowledge will impact the work the applicant does with, or on behalf of, students, faculty, and other constituents.

Questions about the APA Librarian Conference Travel Award should be directed to librariantravel@apa.org. Please help us spread the word by sharing this information with colleagues and friends who may be eligible!
