One $850 grant will be awarded to attend the 2020 ABA TECHSHOW in Chicago. All LIT-SIS members are eligible for this grant. The application deadline for this grant is January 6, 2020. Grants will be made on the basis of: (a) proven potential ability; and (b) promise of future usefulness and permanence in the legal information profession. Applicant’s financial need will also be considered.

As 2019 was the inaugural year of this grant, consideration of previous recipients is not an issue. Generally, however, the awards committee may consider whether the applicant has been the previous recipients of another LIT-SIS grant. Notwithstanding, in the case of limited applications, consideration of previous recipients will not be limited.

All applicants must complete this form and send it with a letter of recommendation to the committee chair. The letters of recommendation should be from someone at the applicant’s current institution or library. Letters of recommendation should address both your professional reasons for attending this particular meeting and your need for a grant. Incomplete and/or late applications will not be considered.
