International delegate at July’s DREaM conference? Apply for £100 travel bursary
April 24, 2012 Leave a comment
The main aim of the DREaM project is to develop a formal UK-wide network of Library and Information Science (LIS) researchers and – as such – we have been bringing together the UK LIS research community at our events. We also recognise that the involvement of international participants in DREaM events provides excellent opportunities for UK LIS researchers to strengthen their links with colleagues from beyond the UK. We were therefore pleased to welcome delegates and speaker from abroad to the launch conference in July 2011, and to the workshop series. In addition, a number of contributors to the programme of events are based outside the UK: Professor Blaise Cronin, Dr Thomas Haigh and Professor Carol Tenopir from the US, Professor Gunilla Widén from Finland, and Dr Dylan Evans from the Republic of Ireland.
We are pleased to offer a travel bursary to the value of £100 to one of our international delegates at the DREaM project’s concluding conference at the British Library, London on Monday 9th July 2012. All interested in LIS research from countries beyond the UK – whether they be our close neighbours in the Republic of Ireland, or based at the other side of the world – are eligible to apply for the bursary.
The value of the award is £100 to help with travel costs to the UK. The winner will be expected to source funding from elsewhere to cover additional expenses such as the balance on travel, plus subsistence and accommodation costs, as well as the £95 conference registration fee.
The deadline for applications is Wednesday 30th May. Applications will be judged by members of the DREaM project advisory board, and the names of the winner announced by mid-June.
To apply for the international delegate bursary please tick the box for “international delegate” when you register for the conference and we will be pleased to send you an application form.
