2016 LibTech Rural Library/School Media Center Scholarships


The Library Technology Conference will be awarding up to ten scholarships to staff members from libraries and school media centers in smaller/rural communities who wish to attend the 2016 LibTech Conference. The goal of these scholarships is to promote library technology proficiency and awareness through attendance at the conference. Each scholarship will cover conference registration (either single day or full 2-day registration fees), as well as one night lodging at one of the conference hotels for those traveling to the conference from outside the 7-county Twin Cities metro area.

Scholarship criteria: Any staff who currently works in a library or school media center in a city, town, or municipality with a population under 30,000 is welcome to apply. Special consideration will be given to persons who will be attending the Library Technology Conference for the first time and those from outside the 7-county Twin Cities metro area. Selection will largely be based on the brief (up to 300 words) statement of the expected benefits that the applicant will receive from conference attendance.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: All scholarship applications must be received no later than Monday, November 30th. Applications received after this date will not be considered.
