OLAC will award two Conference Scholarships that will provide funds for a member of Online Audiovisual Catalogers to attend the OLAC/MOUG 2010 Conference in Macon, Ga., October 15-17, 2010.
Any personal member of OLAC who has never attended an OLAC Conference is eligible for the OLAC Conference Scholarship.
The award amount will cover reasonable estimated costs for registration, lodging, travel, and meals up to $1,000.
The recipient must confirm in writing that he or she will attend. The recipient must attend the full conference, including the business meeting where the award will be announced, and the recipient must write a brief report for the OLAC Board indicating what he or she gained and found to be most helpful in his or her work. The scholarship will be awarded after the conference in the form of a reimbursement for expenses.
Applicants must include a completed application form (below), a current resume, and a cover letter describing why the applicant wishes to attend the Conference, how the receipt/non-receipt of the scholarship will influence his or her ability to attend the conference, and potential applications to his or her present and future job responsibilities.
