SLA Europe is offering two 2018 awards jointly with Divisions of SLA: Academic Division and  Legal Division.

The Early Career Conference Awards provide invaluable opportunities for new library and information professionals to develop and establish themselves within their chosen sector.

The Award will allow winners to attend the 2018 SLA Annual Conference and INFO-EXPO in Baltimore, 11 – 13 June 2018.

Each Award is worth about $4000. It covers the full cost of Conference registration, hotel lodging, economy return airfare to Baltimore, and meals and appropriate incidental expenses.  Award winners  are paired with a mentor from the sponsoring Division. The mentor briefs the award winner before the Conference, gives guidance during the Conference, and maintains a link to the Division following the Conference.

Details about application requirements and the application process can be found on the Guidelines page.

All applications must be received no later than Wednesday, 28 February 2018, 23:59 GMT. Applicants will be informed no later than Friday, 24 March 2018.
