Rural Library or School Media Center Scholarships

The Library Technology Conference will be awarding up to 10 scholarships to staff members from libraries and school media centers in smaller/rural communities who wish to attend the 2015 Lib Tech Conference. The goal of these scholarships is to promote library technology proficiency and awareness through attendance at the conference. Each scholarship will cover conference registration (either single day or full 2-day registration fees), as well as one night lodging at one of the conference hotels for those traveling to the conference from outside the 7-county Twin Cities metro area.

Scholarship criteria: Any staff who currently works in a library or school media center in a city, town, or municipality with a population under 30,000 is welcome to apply. Special consideration will be given to persons who will be attending the Library Technology Conference for the first time and those from outside the 7-county Twin Cities metro area. Selection will largely be based on the brief (up to 300 words) statement of the expected benefits that the applicant will receive from conference attendance.
