To encourage first-time attendance at NHLA Conferences and membership in NHLA, NHLA is offering its members, and non-members, the opportunity to make first-time conference attendance possible with up to six scholarships.
The funds for these scholarships are provided by the proceeds from raffles baskets at past NHLA conferences. The NHLA board is delighted to be able to now offer these scholarships going forward. The number of scholarships provided for any given conference will be based on the amount of funds available at any given time. So please continue to support this program with your raffle ticket purchases!
Each recipient will receive a full conference registration (does not include travel reimbursements) AND one year membership to NHLA for a first time member.
Any New Hampshire library employee or full-time library school student (must be a NH resident) who has not previously attended any NHLA Conference is eligible. Applicants do not have to be current members of NHLA.
Deadline for Fall Conference scholarship applications will be July 31, 2019. At the August Conference Committee meeting, applicants will be reviewed and recipients will be selected. Recipients will be notified and an announcement will be sent out prior to the opening of registration for the Fall Conference.
