Annual Conference Student Award
The Annual Conference Student Award is open to full-time or part-time students working for a first degree or post-graduate qualification in librarianship and information studies. It is not essential that applicants are current members of ARLIS/UK & Ireland.
The purpose of this award is to enable one student per year to attend the ARLIS/UK & Ireland annual conference free of charge, thereby providing the opportunity to learn more of:
- The range of visual arts library activity in the UK & Ireland and abroad
- The nature and variety of visual arts librarianship as a subject specialisation
- The work and wider network of ARLIS/UK & Ireland
The award consists of a single fully-funded place at the ARLIS/UK & Ireland Annual Conference. The award does not include travel costs.
NOTES: If you are registered on an appropriate course at ANY point during the current year of the award you are eligible to apply. Previous applicants will be accepted. The decisions of the Council of ARLIS/UK & Ireland and its Grants Panel shall be final, and no correspondence regarding these shall be entered into. The Council of ARLIS/UK & Ireland reserves the right to make no award if no suitable application is received.
The Grants Panel awarded the student bursary for the 2015 conference to Suzi Hall, studying for an MA in Librarianship at University of Sheffield.
