ALIA Grant

ALIA is pleased to announce that a grant will be awarded this year to a current ALIA member to attend the Asia-Pacific Library and Information Conference 2018.

This has been made possible by a generous contribution from Margaret Allen FALIA, State Librarian of WA. The aim of the grant is to enable an ALIA member to experience the professional development and networking opportunities of attending a conference for the first time.

The grant will provide the recipient with one full conference registration to attend the Asia-Pacific Library and Information Conference 2018 to be held 30 July 2018 to 2  August 2018 in Gold Coast, Queensland. All travel, accommodation and personal costs are the responsibility of the grant recipient. The grant is open to all current ALIA personal members with a demonstrated involvement in ALIA, who have not previously attended an ALIA conference. The grant recipient will be required to write an article for INCITE and make a short presentation at an event in their home state about their conference experience.
