For the second year, EBSCO is sponsoring a $1,000 scholarship for a librarian to attend the 30th Annual Charleston Conference on Nov. 3-6, 2010 in Charleston, SC. Applicants must submit a short essay that details how their library is “Using Technology to Address Challenging Times” by Sept. 17, 2010 to be considered for the scholarship.
To be considered as a candidate, librarians must currently work as a librarian and meet the following criteria:
- Provide one professional recommendation
- Provide a Curriculum Vitae
- Submit a short essay (up to 1,000 words)
Judges for this year’s EBSCO scholarship are Katina Strauch, head of collection development, College of Charleston; Rick Anderson, associate director for scholarly resources & collections, J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah; and Kittie Henderson, director of academic and law divisions, EBSCO.
“The Charleston Conference appreciates the support of EBSCO and many other vendors in providing scholarships for attendance in this time of tight budgets,” says Katina Strauch, Charleston Conference founder and convener. “We realize that without this type of assistance, the opportunity of attendance for many people at this great conference might not be possible.”
All application documents should be sent electronically to Addie Hall at EBSCO (firstname.lastname@example.org) by September 17, 2010. The winner will be notified by Oct. 6, 2010. Scholarship money must be used to attend the 2010 Charleston Conference.
