OLAC will award one Conference Scholarship that will provide funds for a
member of Online Audiovisual Catalogers to attend the OLAC 2012 Conference
in Albuquerque, NM, October 18-21, 2012. Website of conference:
Any personal member of OLAC who has never attended an OLAC Conference is
eligible for the OLAC Conference Scholarship.
The award amount of up to $1,000 will cover reasonable estimated costs for
registration for the conference, preconference if desired, lodging, travel,
and meals. The scholarship will be distributed after the conference in the
form of a reimbursement, so the award recipient should save receipts.
The recipient must confirm in writing that he or she will attend. The
recipient must attend the full conference, including the business meeting
where the award will be announced, and the recipient must write a brief
report for the OLAC Board indicating what he or she gained and found to be
most helpful in his or her work. This report will be published in the OLAC
Applicants must include a completed application form (below), a current
resume, and a cover letter describing why the applicant wishes to attend
the Conference, how the receipt/non-receipt of the scholarship will
influence his or her ability to attend the conference, and potential
applications to his or her present and future job responsibilities.
The application and supporting materials must be received no later than
Friday June 29, 2012. The award will be announced no later than Friday,
