Applications open for VALA2018 Diversity Scholarships

Applications are invited for the VALA2018 Diversity Scholarships. Introduced in 2017, these Scholarships will fund up to three individuals to attend VALA2018, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, in Melbourne, Australia, from 13-15 February 2018. 

VALA recognises that regional, rural and indigenous members of the Library community face additional barriers to participation in both library and technical events. The Diversity Scholarship is offered to individuals who in normal circumstances would not generally attend a VALA event or would struggle to attend due to financial or other hardship. 

Applications close on Monday 6th November 2017. The successful recipient will be notified by Wednesday 15th November 2017. 

More information and how to apply can be found on the VALA website.
