To encourage first-time attendance at the NELA Annual Conference and membership in NELA, NELA is offering its members, and non-members, the opportunity to make first-time conference attendance possible with annual scholarships which are awarded annually to up to six NELA members representing each New England state.
Each recipient will receive a full conference registration (does not include travel reimbursements) AND one year membership to NELA.
Any New England library employee or full-time library school student who have not previously attended the Annual Conference are eligible, with funding from the Educational Assistance Fund. Applicants cannot have been the recipient of any other NELA scholarship, bequest, or grant in the past 12 months. Applicants do not have to be current members of NELA.
The deadline for scholarship applications is June 30th. Applicants will be reviewed in July and recipients will be selected. Recipients will be notified and an announcement will be sent out via email, website and social media by the end of July.
