WAML Scholarship Application 2017
The Western Association of Map Libraries (WAML) is excited to announce two new WAML scholarships to attend the 2017 annual WAML conference: a Diversity Scholarship and an Early Career Librarian Scholarship. The conference will be held on the campus of the University of Texas, Austin on November 2-4, 2017. Each scholarship includes a stipend of $750 for costs related to the conference (lodging, travel, etc.), a one-year membership in WAML, and free conference registration and banquet ticket. Mentorship is an important component of these scholarships: each recipient will be paired with a mentor for the conference and the following year to help provide support and additional engagement.

Applications are due by Sunday, September 10, 11:59 PM (PDT). Please see the scholarship announcement at http://www.waml.org/mbrinfo.html#Scholarships for descriptions of the scholarships and eligibility requirements.
