The ALISE Youth Services SIG seeks graduate student applications for the ALISE / University of Washington Information School Youth Services Graduate Student Travel Award, sponsored by the University of Washington Information School. This award supports costs associated with travel to, and participation in, the January 2014 ALISE Annual Conference, in Philadelphia, PA.
This award is open to students currently enrolled (at the time of the ALISE conference) in an LIS graduate program (including both doctoral and master’s studies) with a concentration in youth services, broadly defined to include materials and library/information services for children and young adults in both everyday life and library settings. Applicants must be members of the Youth Services SIG and must be actively participating in the 2014 ALISE conference (e.g., presenting a poster or a paper, serving as a member of a panel, interviewing for a faculty position).
The award amount is $750, and an individual may only receive the award once. Interested graduate students should submit an application which must include: (1) a letter (no more than one page, single-spaced) describing the individual’s interest and work in the youth services area; (2) evidence of participation (or submission to participate) in the upcoming conference (e.g., poster/paper/panel acceptance/application); and (3) a current CV.
Applications for the 2014 ALISE / University of Washington Information School Youth Services Graduate Student Travel Award should be submitted electronically (as attached PDF or Word file) no later than 11:59 p.m. on November 1, 2013 to:
