# Scholarships to Attend the 2011 Code4Lib Conference #

Oregon State University and the Western North Carolina Library Network are
sponsoring four scholarships to promote gender and cultural diversity. Each
scholarship will provide up to $1,000 to cover travel costs and conference
fees for one qualified attendee to attend the 2011 Code4lib conference,
which will be held in Bloomington, Indiana, from Monday, February 7 through
Thursday, February 10. The Code4Lib scholarship committee will award these
scholarships based on merit and need.

ELIGIBILITY: Applicants, if eligible, may apply for both scholarships, but
no applicant will receive more than one scholarship. Past winners of either
scholarship are not eligible for either scholarship. Scholarship recipients
will be required to write a short trip report to be submitted to the
scholarships committee by March 15, 2011.

For more information on the code4lib conference, please see the conference
website[1], and write-ups of previous code4lib conferences[2,3,4,5].
