Scholarships to Attend the 2011 Code4Lib Conference

# 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.
