Call for CS-SIS Annual Meeting Grants Applications

CS-SIS Members are invited to apply for one of two Annual AALL Meeting and Conference Grants for the upcoming 2017 Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas.

AALL CS-SIS Grant for Students and Newer Librarians:

The purpose of the AALL CS-SIS Grants Program for Students and Newer Librarians is to provide financial assistance for newer librarians or students in library/information school or law school to attend the AALL annual meeting, or a workshop offered at the annual meeting. Among the factors taken into consideration are qualities or activities that indicate the person shows promise of future involvement in the law library profession, especially those who are directly involved in providing technology support of any kind within law libraries.

AALL CS-SIS Grant for Experienced Librarians:

The purpose of the AALL CS-SIS Grants Program is to provide financial assistance to librarians who have a demonstrated commitment to the law library profession, especially those who are directly involved in providing technology support of any kind within law libraries.

Grants will cover registration costs to attend the 2017 AALL Annual Meeting & Conference in Austin, Texas, or registration fees for another educational event, such as CONNELL or a pre-conference workshop held in Austin, Texas. All funds are provided by the AALL CS-SIS.

Successful CS-SIS Grant awardees are expected to write an article about some aspect of their experience attending the AALL Annual Meeting and Conference in Austin.  The article may feature an in-depth review of one program attended or an overview of your whole conference experience, for example.

To apply for a grant, fill out the requisite application (Newer Librarians or Experienced Librarians ) describing how you meet the criteria for the applicable grant and send to Kenton Brice, Vice-Chair of the CS-SIS Grants and Awards Committee, at kbrice@ou.edu. Applications are due via email by midnight on Friday, March 3, 2017.
