2020 Library Publishing Forum Award Application
In an effort to increase the diversity and inclusiveness of this community and to promote the broadest possible participation at the 2020 Library Publishing Forum, the Library Publishing Coalition is pleased to offer the third annual Library Publishing Forum Award. This year, we will offer up to three awards to aid individuals from diverse backgrounds in attending and contributing at the Forum. Awards for North American recipients will total $1,200 while awards for international recipients will total $1,800, in an effort to offset the elevated costs of international travel. The awards may be applied towards airfare, hotel, and other travel-related expenses. The award includes a registration fee waiver. To help them get the most out of the conference, awardees will be paired with a mentor. Awardees will also be asked to reflect on their experience at the Forum in a post for the LPC Blog.
